Ancillary and Other Provider Relationships The company’s health plan subsidiaries arrange for ancillary and other provider services, such as ambulance, laboratory, radiology, home health, chiropractic, acupuncture, and other various therapy providers primarily through contracts with selected providers in their service areas. These contracts have multi-year terms or annual terms with automatic renewals and provide for payments on various bases, including capitation, per diem rates, case rates, and discounted fee-for-service schedules. In certain cases, these provider services are included in contracts its health plan subsidiaries have with PPGs and hospitals. Customers The federal government is the primary customer of the company’s Government Contracts segment.

Marketing and Sales The company markets its products and services to individuals and employer groups through internal sales staff, independent brokers, agents and consultants and through the Internet and the new ACA (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010)-mandated exchanges. Accreditation The company pursues accreditation for certain of its health plans from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC).
