Shawna Meyer

The thing that gets me out of bed in the morning is thinking about wellness initiatives. How do we help people remain independent longer? How do we help them stay in their home as long as possible? How do we help them receive the best care that they need? I think all of these aspects are critical.

– Shawna Meyer, President and CEO of North American Life and Health, a GE Company

Rhett Wieland

“We are seeing a positive shift in the way policyholders are beginning to view their LTC carrier. The intersection of care management and health care, along with Long Term Care wellness programs, is helping policyholders begin to trust us in the same way they also trust their doctors and health plan carriers.”

Peter Goldstein

“We’re in a very important industry at a key time for our aging society. There is much focus on health and wellness and the time is upon us. As innovators and entrepreneurs, with direct access to a cohort of people who purchased long-term policies, it’s time to do something interesting and impactful to change the trajectory of how they age.”

– Peter Goldstein, President and CEO of Illumifin

“I worked for a large-group carrier that offered tons of voluntary benefits. I do not think that there was another product line (at the carrier) where the people in the product line worked as collaboratively with their competitors. It’s unique to long-term care.”
