AMSTERDAM, 4 January 2021- Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, has announced the strategic acquisition of medical advisory firm Medas (Medisch Advies Schadeclaims), including the MAG (Medisch Advies Groep) in the Netherlands.
Medas is a medical consulting firm specialising in the entire medical process during the course of claims and advising on personal injury, disability insurance, life insurance, medical liability and occupational diseases claims. Acquiring Medas positions Sedgwick as the market leader in the field of medical advice and medical claims in the Netherlands.
As part of the transaction, Medas is joining Sedgwick’s Netherlands-based medical and labour affairs department, and the combined team will focus on developing and delivering world-class solutions for clients. Martin de Haan, general manager for Sedgwick in the Netherlands, will lead the unified team, reporting to Netherlands COO Johannes Marinus.
“This acquisition demonstrates Sedgwick’s vision and strategic commitment to investing in growth,” said Jeroen Fröhlich, Sedgwick CEO for the Netherlands. “With the integration of Sedgwick and Medas, we will be able to provide our customers with more solutions and a greater level of specialisation in medical consulting, supported by a large and experienced group of expert medical professionals.”
