FIRST HEALTH GROUP INTRODUCES NEWSLETTER DESIGNED TO HELP PROPERTY AND CASUALTY AGENTS SERVE SMALL BUSINESS INFORMATION NEEDS

 ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- First Health Group, Inc., a national workplace-oriented information services organization headquartered in Arlington, begins its third year of operations this month by introducing a newsletter specifically designed to help property and casualty agents serve small business information needs in the volatile area of employment practices.
 The newsletter is considered to be the core of a full range of services by which property and casualty agencies can meet the information needs of their own customers. The total service also includes an on-demand workplace information clearinghouse. The service is already being utilized by a property and casualty insurer who is the second largest in a multi-state area.
 First Health Group President and CEO Dan Feerst says, "Many property and casualty agents have become increasingly aware that the issues underlying employment practices litigation and exposure to troubled employees in the workplace go to the heart of their customers' daily concerns."
 Feerst adds that the new service, the center piece of which is a regularly published newsletter bearing the name of the participating property and casualty agency in its title, will enable property and casualty agents to help their small business customers stabilize a workplace made chaotic by precipitous expansion of government regulations, heightened worker expectations related to health care and vastly widened exposure to liability.
 The First Health Group Information services program got under way in November 1991, with publication of "Small Business Employee Assistance." In March 1993, First Health began publication of "Employment Practices." First Health has also established the country's first combined Small Business Employee Assistance & Workplace Practices Clearinghouse.
 The function of First Health's Information services, according to Feerst, is to help small businesses maintain a bottom-line focus in the face of increased vulnerability caused by massive changes affecting health care for employees, and such employment practices as sexual harassment, equal opportunity and compliance with disabilities law. The goal, Feerst says, is to help small businesses retain valued workers while maintaining profitability and recovering dollars wasted in inappropriate employee health systems and misunderstood workplace practices.
 First Health Group has prepared a product kit on its tailored program for property and casualty agents. It may be had at no charge by telephoning 800-626-4327 or by writing First Health Group, P.O. Box 21, Merrifield, Va. 22116.
