The Principal Financial Group® Fights Rising Health Care Costs for Northern Nevada Customers

June 8, 2009 (Des Moines, Iowa) — The Principal® joins forces with Renown Health to bring lower costs and greater health care access to customers in Northern Nevada. With the new exclusive agreement, customers receive broad health insurance network coverage including the skill, expertise and technology available within the Renown Health network.

“Today’s economy makes it difficult for business owners to balance health insurance costs with other business needs. To provide some relief, we work hard to identify the best value in each local market which means access to high-quality care at a reasonable price,” said David McNichols, vice president of insured health for the Principal Financial Group®. “We’re excited to work with Renown Health to give our customers in Northern Nevada a better way to control health care costs and expand access to state-of-the art facilities.”

Access to Renown Health’s extensive services is available through the Hometown Health network. In addition to potentially significant savings, the network provides:

  • Numerous health care facilities, including a designated level II trauma center.
  • Network physicians ranging from internists to virtually any type of specialist.
  • Renown Medical Group and Urgent Care with 15 locations throughout the area.
  • Programs and specialties ranging from cancer care to vascular health to women’s services.

“We are excited about this new partnership, and we welcome Principal members to our network,” said Allan Hanssen, vice president of Strategic Initiatives, Renown Health.
