Tonya began her career at AmeriBen in April 2011 in the Analytics Department as an Operations Analyst. Since then, she has earned her promotion to the Director of Client Finance, overseeing eight departments including Analytics, Client Accounting, Claims Integrity, Instructional Design, Stop Loss, Subrogation, and two departments under our Taft-Hartley administration.
Client Finance is a culmination of several departments that have a direct impact on our clients’ financial activities. The Analytics Department is responsible for reporting, data analysis, bench marking, and performance trending. This department strives to provide actionable data that clients can use to promote positive results and helps to drive strategies within plan management. Client Accounting operates as a mini-accounting department on our clients' behalf, administering and servicing our clients' accounting and banking functions. Claims Integrity verifies claims are processed according to our clients’ benefit structure. In addition, they coordinate external auditors on client-specific audits. The Stop Loss team ensures our clients are reimbursed for claims paid over a specific deductible amount. This department also works to ensure the plan is protected against catastrophic or unpredictable losses, while the Subrogation team works with third parties and ensures our clients are reimbursed for claims where a third-party is liable for payment.
Prior to AmeriBen, Tonya worked as a Financial Specialist for the Idaho State Controller's Office with a Certified Government Financial Manager certification from the Association of Government Accountants. Tonya attended Boise State University where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Accounting. She also graduated from Eastern Oregon University with a Bachelor's degree in Art and a minor in Psychology. Tonya is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. In her spare time, she enjoys vacationing with her husband and son, cheering on her favorite football team, and spending time with friends and family.
