Meritain Health Helps Twin Cities Red Cross

MINNEAPOLIS — Meritain Health, the nation's largest independent provider of services for self-funded health plans, announced that its 400 Minneapolis-based employees can donate up to eight hours of their paid time off (PTO) to the American Red Cross-Twin Cities Chapter's I-35W bridge collapse local relief effort.

Meritain Health will determine the contribution based on each donating employee's hourly wage or annual salary, and it will match employee donations with a cash contribution of up to $30,000.

"With so many Minnesotans being forced to leave their jobs for extended periods of time to deal with unspeakable
loss, we thought it was only appropriate to allow our employees to symbolically donate the time away from work that our friends and neighbors desperately need, all while financially helping the larger relief effort,” said Steve Adamson, general manager of CBSA, a Meritain Health company in Minneapolis.

Meritain Health is the nation's largest independent provider of services for self-funded health plans. It serves more than 1,400 self-funded clients and more than 1 million members nationally. The company provides plan administration, innovative wellness, medical management, disease management, network management and cost management services. Meritain Health employs more than 1,350 people, with headquarters in Amherst, N.Y., and regional offices in 28 cities across the country. The company has 400 employees in its Minneapolis office.

Meritain Health is really lending its support in this time of crisis in the Minneapolis area. In addition to this program/donation, it is encouraging employees to donate blood in a local blood drive.
