“I truly cannot say enough good things about Jason and Deb as benefit brokers. Kind, empathetic, quick to respond and always thinking one step ahead. They have been invaluable to us as we have navigated the transition from fully-funded to self-funded insurance – and even switched carriers twice. It’s been a bumpy road of learning, but their commitment and service has been above and beyond. Every time we reach out for help and questions, it’s as if we are treated like their most important client. It’s phenomenal! Trust is essential in the benefits world and they will always be my first choice.”

AHT Offers Comprehensive International
Employee Benefits Solutions
Employee benefit considerations when employees are traveling internationally for business or, they are permanently located internationally (six months or greater), are complicated and decisions about coverage are driven by several factors.
Policy & Regulatory Updates
Read the latest policy and regulatory updates by Christoper E. Condeluci, Principal and sole shareholder of CC Law & Policy PLLC in Washington, D.C.
AHT retained counsel from Christopher E. Condeluci in 2010 due to his expertise and deep understanding about the framework for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Prior to joining the private sector, Chris was a senior staff advisor to Honorable Senator Charles Grassley and served on the Senate Finance Committee during the original drafting of the ACA legislation.
Chris’ greatest value to our clients is the credibility he brings when they need questions answered. Rather than rely on interpretation of the law, which is the standard for most ERISA attorney’s and ACA “experts”, Chris relies on his deep network of relationships at key governmental agencies such as the Treasury, Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Health and Human Services (HHS). Therefore, when we ask Chris a question related to ACA or any aspect of the law, he goes right to the agency that oversees the specific matter.
