AM Best has commented that the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” (Excellent) of SUNZ Insurance Company (SUNZ) (Bradenton, FL) remain unchanged following the sale of its affiliated managing general agency (MGA) and third-party administrator (TPA) operations by its immediate parent, SUNZ Holdings, LLC.

The entities sold as part of the transaction include Next Level Administrators, a third-party administrator; Watchpoint, a special investigative unit; Ascential Care partners, nurse case management and utilization review; Avalon, claims subrogation; and Accelevant Premium Audit.

AM Best does not expect SUNZ’s rating fundamentals to be impacted by the sale of these operations, as the company still will maintain full access to these service companies after the transaction closes.

SUNZ was formed in 2005 and primarily writes high deductible worker’s compensation coverage, utilizing its proprietary technology-driven platform focused on collateral management for its medium and small business clients.
