Hamilton County Government

Innovative approach supports best-in-class benefits

Challenge

The team at FirstPerson met Hamilton County in 2011. At this point, the Affordable Care Act had been signed into law and was beginning to take shape, which alerted Hamilton County to the fact that they needed to work to tighten up plan administration.

Solution

In working with Hamilton County, the team at FirstPerson created an approach that took the budget into consideration and provided the Board of Commissioners with ongoing analysis, while adhering to a strict timeline. The process that was developed focused on FirstPerson’s guidance around the requirements and desires set forth by Hamilton County.

FirstPerson and their Team have provided Hamilton County with the best service and innovative ideas to provide our employees peace of mind with their benefits package.
