“Two organizations with so much in common can accomplish a great deal when our advocacy goals and educational priorities come together,” said Martin Trussell, executive director of ECFC. “TPA members have always been a significant priority for our organization, and we’re excited to continue to find new ways to engage and educate them to advance healthcare consumerism.”
“NAPBA always strives to work with the best in class in the benefits world,” said John Gutzwiller, president of NAPBA. “ECFC is a long-time leader in the employee benefits industry and an advocate for NAPBA members and the employees we serve. We are thrilled to begin this partnership that will strengthen our industry for many years to come.”
ECFC celebrates its 35-year anniversary this year, and during much of this time the NAPBA has served as a source of training and knowledge for third party administrators of employee benefits programs.
