Amid mixed signals of economic recovery, we are working to address the significant changes taking place in the health care environment by operating even more efficiently," said Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Kathy Lancaster. "In addition, we are preparing for the reduction in Medicare Advantage reimbursement rates that will occur in 2010, as well as for the changes that health care reform will bring. With high unemployment levels throughout the nation, we are also strengthening our efforts to retain and grow our membership."

"As we face these challenges, we remain committed to providing high-quality, affordable care to our members," added Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Halvorson.
