Partnership With Alliant to Support Companies' Transition to New Federal Requirements

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2013) -  The Illinois Technology Association (ITA) has selected Alliant Insurance Services as an exclusive Service Network Provider to support member companies' compliance with the Healthcare Reform Act through custom built health & benefits insurance programs. The ITA chose Alliant Insurance Services for its market leadership in the delivery of network services to the Illinois-based technology industry.
