"It has been a pleasure working with Healthcents. Healthcents opened the door to an area of business that seemed closed to us and of which we had little knowledge. Within one year we contracted with most of the major insurance companies. We've reached even further into these arenas on our own now and understand the makings of this marketplace, thanks to Healthcents. Healthcents shared information with us, providing very prompt service, and we will continue to use them in the future."
Ms. Debbie Norton
Manager, Support Systems Homes

Testimonials for Education and Course Delivery:
“Contract negotiation is a very timely issue. Rather than assume that nothing can be done with insurance contracts, all managers will benefit from this course and the tools that they give you to help in the process of contract negotiation. The worksheets and software were great; I have done a couple of contract negotiations before but this course gave me a chance to understand it better.”
