“It has been a great experience working with LHD. Jeff and his group have been very easy to work with and have given their undivided attention to our health insurance and to our unique situation. I have been very happy for the past 10 years of LHD’s professionalism and expertise.”
“LHD Benefit Advisors has been a driving force in Purdue’s ability to tell the story of our benefits. As we continue to look for and explore new ways to approach and share our information, the LHD team is complementary to the innovative nature that sets Purdue apart from the rest.”
“LHD Benefit Advisors has been providing consulting service to the NCAA for 20 years on staff benefits, including due diligence and selection of benefits vendors. The advice provided has allowed the NCAA to maintain a competitive, cost effective benefit program. We would recommend LHD Benefit Advisors to others with similar service needs.”
“I was introduced to Jeff Hadden in 2004 when I started my career at the Indiana Credit Union League, where I am responsible for the management of our association health plan. Over the years, we have made major changes to our plan structure and LHD played a major role in making that transition. LHD is extremely knowledgeable, hard-working professionals who care about our clients as much as we do. I attribute much of the success of our plan to the team at LHD. Without them, we would not be where we are today.”
Ultimately, I want to be viewed as a true partner to our clients. I want our collaborated efforts to provide long-term impact for each clients’ organization.
