Web-based core-administration software built from the ground up for the nuances of healthcare benefit management to enable payers to streamline operations, reduce cost, manage risk, and succeed during reform.
Full Spectrum of Solutions
Six leaders in world-class outsourcing solutions united by a state-of-art software platform, leveraged by our customers in a relationship they define. Flexibility and scalability are here to stay.
More than two decades ago, SKYGEN USA’s leadership team set out to transform the way specialty benefits are delivered. Their plan was straightforward: Drive change by leveraging emerging technology to generate the lowest possible administrative cost, and by delivering 24/7 access to critical, filterable information essential to effectively managing healthcare benefit costs.
SKYGEN USA’s leadership team began with Medicaid dental benefit administration and the development of customized technology, now known as Wonderbox Technologies’ Enterprise System. Their firm, Doral Dental USA became one of the largest dental management companies in the nation before its sale to DentaQuest Ventures. With the tremendous success of the software platform, the team expanded Wonderbox Technologies and their benefit management services to support additional lines of business and a wider range of healthcare payers, managed care organizations, and delivery systems.
Today, Wonderbox Technologies, Vestica Healthcare, Scion Dental, American Therapy Administrators, Ocular Benefits and Hylis Pharmacy Solutions are united through a team of passionate, experienced leaders and employees, working together as a fully integrated family of companies. All six companies lead in world-class solutions to manage benefits in their respective markets. SKYGEN USA offers healthcare payers an integrated outsourcing solution delivered by technology that is flexible, scalable and quickly adaptable to constant change in the healthcare environment.

- What companies are part of the SKYGEN USA Family of Companies?
Wonderbox Technologies, Scion Dental, Vestica Healthcare, Ocular Benefits, American Therapy Administrators and Hylis Pharmacy Solutions. Each company is a sister to one another.
- What makes SKYGEN USA unique?
SKYGEN USA offers a comprehensive mix of flexible and highly scalable benefit management solutions to the healthcare marketplace driven by one of the world’s most innovative software platforms built by Wonderbox Technologies. This premier software platform is called the Enterprise System.
SKYGEN USA’s benefit management solutions include outsourced administrative services in high-demand markets such as dental (Scion Dental), medical (Vestica Healthcare), physical and chiropractic therapy (American Therapy Administrators) and vision (Ocular Benefits). We also offer state-of-the-art benefit management technology (Wonderbox Technologies) for healthcare organizations that may not need to outsource administration, yet are looking for a safe and reform ready software platform to optimize the administration of benefits for their providers and members.
Our customers tell us that companies within the SKYGEN USA family are unique at predicting what is on the horizon when it comes to challenges driven by healthcare reform as well as business challenges in general. With our distinctive combination of innovative technology and world-class services, we are able to keep our customers at the forefront of technology and regulatory compliance.
- How will SKYGEN USA deliver added value?
The addition of the SKYGEN USA brand is an outward sign of our desire to better leverage the collective strengths and experience of our companies to provide added value for our clients. The healthcare marketplace is rapidly changing, and we believe closer collaboration will help us keep our clients market-leading and reform-ready.
- Why create two business divisions under the SKYGEN USA umbrella, “SKYGEN USA Technologies” and “SKYGEN USA Benefit Management?
The creation of two divisions provides our clients with a distinct view of our two offerings: benefit management technology and benefit management services. Currently, Wonderbox Technologies resides under the SKYGEN USA Technologies division and Scion Dental, Vestica Healthcare, American Therapy Administrators, Ocular Benefits, and Hylis Pharmacy Solutions all reside under the SKYGEN USA Benefit Management division.
The creation of divisions also opens up the ability for customers to be exposed to services of other companies within the family. For example, an insurer leveraging Scion Dental for dental administration may also look to optimize a BPO partner for medical administration. Therefore, Vestica Healthcare may be considered. Another example: An insurer leveraging Ocular Benefits for vision administration may decide to, one day, in-source vision administration and may need a software platform to manage the in-sourced administration. Therefore, Wonderbox Technologies may be considered.
The creation of two divisions offers a clean and clear way to communicate how we are organized and the distinct value our family of companies provides.
- What technology is available through SKYGEN USA Technologies?
Wonderbox Technologies’ Enterprise System is the driving force behind SKYGEN USA Technologies and SKYGEN USA as a whole.

In addition, we have a tradition of developing pioneering technology for healthcare benefit management, and we expect that tradition to continue.

The leadership team at SKYGEN USA remains the same. Craig Kasten, Co-Founder and Board Chairman, continues to lead the family of companies.
