COLUMBUS, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 7, 2005 -- American Health Holding, a multi-URAC accredited, national Medical Management firm, announced today it will provide its Disease Management, Demand Management, and Maternity Management services to Healthcare Management Administrators (HMA), a benefit administrative services corporation located in Bellevue, Washington.

American Health's unparalleled medical management tools will provide HMA with significant cost savings while adding value to their existing scope of services.

"Working with HMA is a really exciting opportunity for us," states Michael J. Reidelbach, President and CEO of American Health Holding. "The addition of American Health's services to HMA's already robust health plan will round out their existing offerings. HMA will experience improved care and better quality of life for their members, as well as a significant reduction in healthcare costs."
