Marcus became Partner with LHD in 2021. He works with clients of all sizes to develop and execute strategies to support their business objectives.
Prior to coming to LHD, he was at Anthem for 15 years, spanning several different roles with increasing responsibilities. Most recently, he led their major accounts segment which included overall responsibility for Anthem’s 75 largest clients in Indiana representing 400,000 members and more than $2 billion in premium equivalents. Marcus and his team successfully retained more than 97% of clients while also growing the Anthem footprint in key areas including Reinsurance, Group Retiree Solutions, Student Health Insurance and traditional ancillary lines like Dental, Vision, Life and Disability.
He has experience in all aspects of health care delivery including benefit plan design, pharmacy negotiations, network evaluation, communication strategies, plan compliance, and other strategies required to offer a competitive benefit offering.
While Marcus is not at the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Sarah, and their three boys, Benjamin, George and Beau.
Marcus received a Bachelor’s degree from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business.
“Hoosier has worked with LHD for about a year and they have provided valuable expertise in our benefits administration and overall human resources. I view them as a member of our team and do not hesitate to call with any employee related issues. LHD is always prompt in their responses and knowledgeable about HR and employee benefits compliance. We look forward to their partnership for many years.”
“While hanging from a tree root above a 1,000 foot ice laden crevasse, in the Alaska northern Brooks Range, clinging to dear life fighting hypothermia following a bear attack, I was at extreme peace knowing the helicopter ambulance, possible amputations of frost bitten appendages, out of network hospitals and long term recovery were all items LHD had ensured the ISP Health Insurance Plan had the extreme forethought to consider. Fight on- LHD has your back!
DISCLAIMER – This may be a dramatization, but reassured either way, LHD is the best in the business.”
“After being in the market for a new health benefits broker, our HR team interviewed representatives from several organizations before solidifying a partnership with Marcus and LHD. Since that time, we have been extremely pleased with Marcus and his team’s ability to provide comprehensive and personalized health benefit options and resources in a way that makes us feel like they are part of our work family and have our best interests at heart. The genuine, open, and responsive service along with the ability to obtain results, makes LHD a leader in their industry. I highly recommend LHD to other professionals in the market for a top-notch health benefits broker!”
“Since onboarding with LHD, we’ve developed an extremely transparent and trustworthy relationship with Marcus and our entire LHD team. They understand that olio is a startup and every penny counts. Through attention to detail and better service, they’ve helped us save 40%.”
I’ve had the unique opportunity to work with many benefit advisory firms across the country in my 14 years at Anthem. When I decided to make a transition into consulting, I only talked to one firm – LHD Benefit Advisors. I’m reminded every day that was the right decision!
