  • Kelly H. Klutz

    Cabarrus County Schools selected Mark III after an extensive RFP process. We actually compared their voluntary products to other brokers as part of our selection process and we thought the competitive pricing and benefits would provide our employees the best service level. They have been handling all our enrollments, communication and administration of voluntary benefits for several years.

    Mark III has been very helpful with their staff providing our employees with excellent customer services. Mark III has also provided assistance with the interpretation and implementation of some of the legal aspects of the Affordable Health Care Act. We have found the staff and management to be extremely dedicated to timely response and excellent service. Thanks to Mark III our annual enrollment process goes very smoothly and our employees like the interaction and communication from the enrollment process.
