    August, 2015 

    It has been a busy summer at Premera getting ready for 2016 individual product training and open enrollment, as well as launching the Checkup Challenge. As individual open enrollment approaches, I want to make sure you have what you need to advise your clients. You're welcome to contact your Premera sales representative or me if you have questions or feedback.
