About Us
Praxis Disability Group, an affiliate company to Praxis Consulting, was formed in 2010 after Praxis Consulting purchased the assets of Aon Recovery, a division of Aon Global. PDG combines a mastery of the group disability insurance market with a wealth of experience and expertise in the area of self-funded ERISA subrogation and recovery. The result is a best-in-class, ethical approach to cost-mitigation services for the group disability insurance industry.
Founded in 1997, Praxis Consulting’s focus is subrogation outsourcing, benchmarking and closed file reviews for U.S. auto insurers, self-insureds, TPAs and municipalities. Both parent and subsidiary assist our clients in concentrating on core functions by reducing the administrative burdens of subrogation activities.

Over the twenty-eight years of her professional career, Alison has worked with the nation’s top insurance carriers, reinsurers and TPAs to generate additional, often untapped, revenue streams through subrogation and overpayment recovery.

Prior to that, she spent 15 years representing self-funded ERISA health plans. In doing so, Alison became well versed in varied and conflicting federal circuit court laws and navigated the evolution of the Supreme Court’s applicable rulings aimed at resolving splits among the circuit courts.
