I have never been disappointed with American Health's level of customer service. I can't think of a single occasion where we've asked for something and not received it. We are also very appreciative of American Health's Utilization Management reports. They're very informative, concise, comprehensive and user friendly to both the administrators and the clinicians on staff.

There are specific companies where you have one or two people that you can contact, and those people come and go. Our companies have been working together since the 90s. There's a huge comfort factor in being able to contact my American Health account executive who I've worked with for years and years. I know I'm going to get a response, and it's going to be timely. If it's something that is being worked on, then American Health keeps me updated. And if there is any way, shape or form that what I'm asking for can happen, it's done. And if it's not, then I still know I'm going to get an answer, even if I don't like that answer. That's unique nowadays. Everyone wants to pass the buck. That is worth gold. If I can have someone that's honest with me, that's huge.Marc Paulson
