Former NAIC President and West Virginia Commissioner Jane Cline to Advise Getinsured.com

Regulatory and Public Policy Expert Jane Cline Will Help Advance Private Health Exchanges

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 7, 2011) - Jane Cline, former President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and Insurance Commissioner for West Virginia, will serve as an advisor and consultant to Getinsured.com, a leading private health insurance Exchange. The relationship affirms Getinsured's dedication to providing employers, individuals and families with access to high quality, affordable health insurance.

The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) underscores the pressing need for market-based solutions that provide consumers with a wide-range of competitively priced health insurance products. Cline served as West Virginia's Insurance Commissioner for ten years and thereafter as the President-elect of the NAIC. As a regulatory leader on both the state and national level, she provides invaluable expertise on the strategy, policy and customization of the Getinsured.com platform for West Virginia and other states. Her broad experience will position Getinsured for sustained success with its current and future state health insurance Exchanges.

"Getinsured's commitment to developing customized solutions for individual markets firmly establishes it as a leader among Exchanges," said former Commissioner Cline. "I look forward to partnering with members of the executive team to ensure that individuals in West Virginia and across the entire nation have direct access to high quality, affordable health care."

Getinsured's CEO and co-founder Chini Krishnan welcomes the opportunity to work with Cline. "Commissioner Cline's considerable knowledge of healthcare policies and regulations combined with her dedication to innovative market-based solutions provide Getinsured with unparalleled expertise and a strategic advantage."

Private health insurance Exchanges offer customers the ability to buy affordable health insurance that meets the requirements of the ACA. When implemented correctly, they fuel competition in the marketplace by spurring product innovation and transparency. This in turn increases healthcare efficiency and affordability.
