“In my 35-plus years of working in the clinical and administrative areas of the healthcare industry, I have seen the environment become increasingly confusing and complex. Plans and providers seem to change every year. In many cases, employees do not know who to call for help. And often, a phone call to the health plan does not completely resolve complex issues. Employees and retirees want and deserve a knowledgeable and compassionate advocate to help them understand their benefits and to negotiate on their behalf.” – Mary Kesel, Founder and CEO.
