Quote Attributable to Melanie Matthews, HIN Executive VP and COO:

“With efforts to repeal and replace the ACA now focused on eliminating cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers and changes to regulations governing association health plans, short-term, limited-duration insurance and health reimbursement arrangements, the healthcare industry can set aside some of the uncertainty of this year. However, there are still formidable market forces in play, and as always during this annual strategic planning session, our thought leaders will offer tactics and strategies for business success in 2018.”

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
