Guillama, President & CEO, commented, "We are extremely pleased to receive approval of our application from the State of Florida and to mark the achievement of another major benchmark in our 2008 business plan. We will now be able to integrate the services of RASI into our menu of solutions as we continue our corporate mission to increase efficiencies in healthcare administration for our partners by reducing redundancy, paperwork and minimizing waste. With the addition of RASI, we believe that our collective efforts will yield a higher quality of care for healthcare consumers."

Formally, Renaissance Administrative Solutions, Inc. (RASI) has executed a consent order with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation that has granted RASI with a Certificate of Authority to act as an Insurance Administrator also referred to as a Third Party Administrator (TPA) in the state of Florida. The order executed by The Quantum Group, Inc. (as ultimate parent), Renaissance Health Systems, Inc. (as parent) and RASI (as applicant) sets terms and conditions considered routine in the control and operation of RASI.

The Company expects initial TPA operations to begin January 1, 2009.
