Tim Godzich, Liazon Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder, this week announced that Governor Tommy Thompson, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, has joined Liazon as an advisor. Liazon is a consumer-centric employee benefits company.
As an advisor, Governor Thompson will contribute his broad healthcare experience and significant stature among healthcare policy makers to further awareness of Liazonís innovative approach to employee benefits.
In a release issued by the firm, Governor Thompson said, ďLiazon enables employers to better control and budget their benefits costs.Ē As the healthcare reform debate grinds on, the Governor cites Liazonís demonstrated success with small businesses across the country as a rebuttal to those who say access to affordable, high-quality health insurance for all Americans isnít possible.
