"I have known Mike for over two years now and he has been invaluable in helping me to navigate the health care waters for our studios.
Mike is an independent consultant and his services include reviewing your staff and its needs and recommending a health care plan that will make
sense for your business. Most importantly to me, he is not an employee of any particular health care company, so he can review all of your options and make a recommendation for the best plan without any bias. Also, since I have worked with Mike, he is very familiar with the FT model and the needs of our companies.
If you are interested in an impartial review of your current health care setup, I would strongly encourage you to sit down with Mike."

"IQS has been working with Mike Kost since June 2004. Since that time, Mike has been truly efficient in assisting IQS with our benefit package. He has continued to be proactive with our annual renewal periods and has helped to improve our benefit package without increasing our monthly rates.
Mike has also been heavily involved in meeting with our employees to help work through the transition of a new health plan and was instrumental in implementing a Health Savings Account.
It has been a pleasure to work with Mike as he has demonstrated his wealth of knowledge in the industry. His professionalism and sincere efforts to achieve the best benefit package for our group have
been greatly appreciated."

"It has been a pleasure working with Mike Kost this past year. We were with Cose (Medical Mutual) for the last five years or so and their rate increases each year were quite high. We were looking to save money on a new health/dental policy. Mike marketed our plan and found us better rates at Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Even though Anthem initially quoted our rates to go up 14.8% this year, Mike was able to negotiate for us and bring that increase down to 4.8%. Mike, thank you so much for helping us save money,
especially in this rough economy."

"I just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks for your continued great service. We can always count on you to bring us the best value in a health care plan. We wish you all the best and continued success!"

"Etactics first engaged Kost Consulting in November, 2004. Since then Michael has been an integral part of our efforts to provide big company benefits to our employees. Michael has
demonstrated excellent communication and attention to detail since we first met him. His ability to understand our needs and wants and then provide
suggestions and alternatives has been exemplary. Over the years, Michael has helped us though numerous transitions and enhancements to our benefit package for our employees."

"RG Digital has been using Kost Consulting for the last 7 years. In the beginning we were a sole proprietorship and only needed basic individual health plans. As time progressed, we grew and Mike and Kost Consulting adapted to our needs seamlessly. Mike make our benefits planning and management simple and quick, allowing us to focus on what we need to do. When time to renew comes each year, Mike explains all of our options and helps us to make an informed and appropriate
choice for our employees."
