“After conducting a thorough evaluation of all options, we are thrilled to implement TALON’s solution to achieve compliance with the federal mandates on January 1,” said Cathy Dunn, President of Dunn Benefits. “Through this partnership Dunn additionally offers safe harbor for these federal mandates to our clients as we help foster an efficient healthcare marketplace not seen before.
