Since the healthcare & health insurance industries have had very little sucess to date in controlling our nations rising health care and health insurance costs ; which has caused our nations population of uninsured citizens to exceed 45 million individuals ; governmental reforms are certain to be a highly debated issue prior to our nation's next presidential election.
With each 2007 Presidential candidate vowing to introduce their own version of health care and/or health insurance industry reform ; it appears significant changes may be inevitable.
Our management team is very committed to continuing our internet based marketing campaigns with state of the art web site technology for health/life/accident products lines in what ever future format such reforms may allow . We are also very optimistic about expanding our personal and commerical Property & Casualty product lines through advanced web site technology and extensive online insurance services; accompanied by our internet based marketing capabilities.
Change can be a very good thing ; if properly planned and implemented over a reasonable period of time.
