Rising benefit costs, shrinking dues and membership rosters…providing the benefits labor and union workers earned is challenge today. That's why organizations across the country look to InTech to help them protect... and maximize... their Retiree Drug Subsidy dollars. And to find what may have been missed with an RDS Reopening. It can be worth hundreds of thousands of additional dollars
Retiree members today and those in the future depend on getting the maximum subsidy at the lowest cost to help protect the benefits they've worked a lifetime to earn.
"The financial outcome of the re-open process is tied directly to the expertise and capabilities of the
RDS vendor to evaluate multiple factors in the RDS process and identify where the issues are and what the financial
opportunity is. In our case, InTech identified past enrollment issues impacting more than 30% of our retiree
population. After re-opening the plan year, we corrected the enrollment and eligibility issues resulting in the
fund capturing an additional $165,500 in subsidy for a single plan year."

"Please accept this letter as a testimonial in support of InTech Health Ventures of Tucson, Arizona. I was
initially referred to InTech by a consultant for our Taft-Hartley health fund. I was faced with the daunting task
of trying to reconcile the 2006 Retiree Drug Subsidy accounts for two separate pharmacy benefit management firms.
The reconciliation process prescribed by RDS was a multiple-step nightmare, made considerably worse because we
needed to combine data from each pharmacy benefit manager before even beginning to reconcile. Within a day or two
after my initial contact with InTech, they jumped into the project with both feet. InTech's methodical approach to
tackling the job was remarkable. Over a period of several months, they patiently guided me through the data and
the demographic review necessary to ensure that what we had was accurate. InTech spoke directly to RDS, our pharmacy
benefit manager groups, and anyone else from whom they needed information. We had weekly telephone meetings to
review progress, and frequent voice and email contact in between meetings as the need arose. InTech was available
virtually 100% of the time, whether or not their representative was in the office, and even while on vacation.
The reconciliation was completed on time and with every effort made to secure the maximum amount of subsidy monies
available. InTech made it painless and efficient. I would have no hesitation using their services repeatedly,
given their level of expertise and cooperation.
