3rd Quarter Updates & News

Posted on: September 30th, 2010 by Kristine No Comments

This quarter has kept our team very busy with all the Healthcare Reform changes. A few of these regulations that are effective today include coverage for pre-existing conditions for children under 19, dependent coverage for children up to age 26 who currently do not have other group coverage, unlimited lifetime limits for all policy holders and emergency services treated as in network. I have been doing several presentations on the subject so if you want more information please call our office.

I am hoping that many of these changes will help create more consumer awareness. And also realize that we are here to support you and your employees with any questions or challenges that you have. There is a lot to keep up with and it will be important to see how we can bring the costs down with all the new benefit additions.

We also added a new staff member, Colleen McCombs, who will be assisting Ryan Hansen with Account Management. Please feel free to call her and have her help you with any service issues. Also, we are happy to announce we added another baby to the Benefits by Design family. Ryan Hansen delivered Carson James on September 11, 2010. Both Mother and baby are doing great and Ryan will be back at work in November.

Personally I wanted to share with you that I was nominated for the Athena Award this year. I was not selected as a finalist, but it really is a great honor to be part of such a great group of successful women. Here are some other activities I am keeping active with: Tempe Leadership, Tempe Chamber of Commerce Board, Athena Powerlink Board, Gabriel’s Angel’s Board, ASBA Board and recently the Phoenix NAWBO Board as President-Elect. I truly feel that volunteering is what helps us grow as a person through leadership and learning.
