Date:9/16/2009

CLEVELAND, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Government officials, Lobbyists and other Health Care advocates from Washington D.C. will land in Cleveland to explain to Northeast Ohio's businesses and employers the status of and potential implications from Health Care reform.

    WHO:    Eleanor Dehoney, Legislative Director for U.S. Senator Sherrod
             Brown
            Katie Hays, Dir., Congressional Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
            Joel Wood, SVP Gov. Affairs, Council of Insurance Agents and
             Brokers
            Janet Trautwein, CEO, National Association of Health Underwriters
            Brent Carson, VP, Managed Care, University Hospitals
            Heidi Gartland, VP, Government Relations, University Hospitals

    WHAT:   Roundtable discussion on Health Care Reform Legislation

    WHEN:   9 a.m. - noon, Mon., Sept. 28

    WHERE:  Marriott Key Center, Cleveland

The moderator will be Robert Klonk, EVP at Oswald Companies, a Cleveland-based risk management firm and insurance brokerage for group benefits, property and casualty, specialty risk, and life and other personal insurance solutions. He will engage the audience in a discussion on proposed changes to the delivery of health care and the methods by which insurance companies finance it. Oswald is the roundtable sponsor.

Klonk leads Oswald's Group Benefits practice and serves on the board of trustees for The Council of Agents and Brokers and Assurex Global, a global consortium of independent brokers representing 500 Partner office locations in over 80 countries on six continents.

"As a nation we need to do everything possible to help make health insurance available," Klonk said. "When it comes to reform there's a rush in Washington to get something done, more so than to get it done right. The only true solution, however, is creating a system that lowers health risks as costs will otherwise continue to escalate, regardless. Employers in Ohio need to be prepared."
