Its flagship product, the CareGain HealthcareIRATM, is a private, employee-owned account established by employers for their employees and funded by end-of-year dividends.

Green was tapped for CareGain's Board of Advisors because of his vast experience in marketing and product development in the health insurance space, as well as his knowledge and market leadership in benefits administration technology. His company, America's Choice Healthplans (ACH), leverages the power of the Internet to improve employers' efficiencies and provide greater management control through real-time, online communications.

Green has over 15 years of experience in the health insurance industry. Prior to founding ACH in 1994, he co-founded Cox-Green Associates in 1987, a managed care administrative firm. During his tenure as president and COO, Green brought the first self-funded managed care plans to the New Jersey marketplace, was instrumental in the establishment of several multi-employer programs, and created a successful distribution system within the insurance community.
Green looks forward to his new role with CareGain.
