Ritter Insurance Marketing Selected as an FMO for University of Maryland Health Advantage's Medicare Advantage Plan Launch

HARRISBURG, PA--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - Ritter Insurance Marketing ("Ritter") is pleased to announce that they have signed a Field Marketing Organization ("FMO") agreement with University of Maryland Health Advantage ("UMHA"), formerly Riverside Health, Inc., for their Medicare Advantage ("MA") plans. Ritter will help UMHA launch their MA plans, which are being released for the 2016 Annual Election Period ("AEP") starting October 15, 2015.

"University of Maryland Medical System's reputation as national leader in the health-care industry is well established," Craig Ritter, President and Owner of Ritter, remarked.
