American Claims Management, Inc. (ACM) has assumed third party administration of all animal malpractice, general liability, auto and property claims for Veterinary Centers of America (VCA), a publicly traded provider of pet health care services.
By partnering with VCA’s experienced Risk Department, ACM will help allow the local leadership teams to focus on pet health, not insurance claims, explained ACM President of Property and Casualty Dhara Patel. They chose ACM for its clear communication and collaboration practices, technology offerings and ultra-customization capabilities, allowing an exact fit to VCA’s needs.

Employing more than 3,000 veterinarians, VCA boasts the largest group of specialists of any veterinary care company.
“The VCA team is made up of incredibly talented and energetic people, and we are excited to be able to service their network as they continue to grow through acquisitions at an incredible rate,” said Patel.
