WellNet, a healthcare management firm that provides lower cost, level-funded and self-funded replacement health insurance plans for companies that offers healthcare benefits to their employees, welcomes five new, full-time business development executives from across the country.

“Lowering health insurance costs for businesses and their employees around the nation has accelerated the need to bring on additional subject matter experts,” said Keith Lemer, Chief Executive Officer of The WellNet Healthcare Plan. “After receiving attention from CNBC and The Wall Street Journal on how WellNet is fixing the cost of healthcare, we have seen a 65% uptick in businesses pursuing our private-sector solution. When you reduce the health care cost, you reduce the health insurance costs.”

Joe Clifton, James Darnell, Adam Khan, Eric Meyerhoff and Daniel Wells round out WellNet’s team.

Clifton, based in the Northeast region, has over 25 years of Self-Funding and Stop Loss experience having most recently been with Fortune 100 firm, Arthur J. Gallagher.

Darnell, residing in the Western region, has over 20 years of insurance industry and employee benefits experience, having most recently been with Vera Whole Health.

Khan, working in the Northeast region, brings nearly 20 years of healthcare cost containment expertise from Healthstat and Concentra, a division of Humana.

Meyerhoff, rounding out the Northeast region as well, brings 25 years of risk and cost strategies from Total Administrative Services Corp (TASC) and Aflac.

And Daniel Wells, leading the Midwest market with almost 30 years’ experience developing health plans for Endeavor Plus and hCentive.

“Assembling executives of this caliber whereby WellNet’s plans offer employees the ability to access their existing healthcare providers while focusing on lower cost and higher quality doctors to improve the medical plan, directly impacts the employers’ bottom line,” said Jason Kovar, Chief Executive Office of WellNet Healthcare Administrators.
