2015 will mark our 120th year in business. I remember our inaugural newsletter of 1991 in which the headline read, “We’re 100 Years Young”. The following words were in the body of the Message from the President, “Change happens quickly now, and those changes directly effect your insurance coverage. It’s our responsibility to make sure that your insurance needs are met in that environment of change, and our agency has to look forward in an effort stay one step ahead of those changes and your needs.” Even 23 years later I recognize the truism of those comments.
Toward that end, we are proud to announce the acquisition of CBP, a local firm that offered health benefits and third party administration for Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs), Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). These products and services are designed to help employers, their employees, and individuals, better manage their healthcare dollars. With so many new health insurance laws and plans available, I am pleased that the Merriam Agency continues to evolve and keep pace with our clients’ changing needs. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of serving you. Our commitment, over these many years, has never wavered. If you would like to find out how our new services may benefit you, please call us and ask for our healthcare department.
