Association of counties makes deal with Extend Health for Medicare-eligible retirees
Sacramento Business Journal

The finance corporation for the Sacramento-based California State Association of Counties has a new partnership with a Towers Watson company that will allow California counties to provide health benefits for their Medicare-eligible retirees and dependents on what the company says is the nation’s largest private Medicare exchange.

San Mateo-based Extend Health was acquired by professional services company Towers Watson in 2012. The exchange offers plans from more than 85 health insurance carriers.
