    The Ownership, Executive Management and Corporate have made many positive changes. Management for me personally, is there when I need them. I am never afraid to ask a question to ensure I give my best effort. It is People caring for People and I can stand behind that.

    Keep listening to the feedback and initiating positive changes and the growth will continue.

    Cons

    with my coverage medication is supposed to be priced at $10,$50 or $100, and if you use their online delivery its supposed to be 2 1/2 times this price for a 90 day supply, prescriptions do not count toward the deductible. the price for my 90 days $1163, because I haven't met my deductible

    Stop lieing about the benefits
