Human Arc Wins 2009 Pillar Award for Community Service

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Human Arc, a best practices leader in reimbursement and other innovative revenue enhancement services for hospitals and health plans, has been named for the second time as a recipient of the Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service by Smart Business magazine, the management journal published by Smart Business Network, Inc.

The award, according to Smart Business, "honors businesses of all types that make outstanding contributions to their communities. Its purpose is to encourage a charitable environment, recognize creative efforts that make a difference and demonstrate ties between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds."

The Pillar Award recognizes Human Arc's commitment to improve healthcare experiences and quality of life for uninsured hospital patients, low income members of managed care health insurance plans, the disabled and other at-risk groups. Since 1984, the firm's outreach has helped many hundreds of thousands of people with special needs. The Human Arc business model emphasizes that its work, done through hospitals, health systems and managed care health plans, leverages the efforts of national, state and county government agencies to help fund the healthcare and related needs of our nation's uninsured, aged and disabled population groups. This is a practical and successful application of the principle that cooperation between for-profit and nonprofit sectors can yield societal benefits beyond what either can achieve separately.

Sponsors for the Medical Mutual 2009 Pillar Award for Community Service include CVS/Caremark, Fifth Third Bank, Fairmount Minerals, Rea & Associates, McDonald Hopkins, Le Chaperon Rouge, LaCentre Conference & Banquet Facility and Hughie's Audio Visual and Computer Services.
