    April, 2014 

    This has no doubt been a transformational time in our industry.

    This past week, we have seen the close of the first annual enrollment period through the Exchange. We enter in to a new phase of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with April 1 marking the start of the special enrollment period for Individuals who have a qualifying event. Now we look forward to applying lessons learned and preparing for the next enrollment period.

    We also continue to focus on providing both small and large employer groups innovative products and services that will help them control their costs while offering their employees benefits and value.

    I'd like to thank you for your support and for working together with us to help your clients through this historical time in healthcare.

    Director, Eastern WA Sales and Marketing
