VERITUS INC. -- YEAR IN REVIEW

 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Veritus Inc. completed its first full year of operations under its new name by expanding and diversifying to offer the full spectrum of employee benefit services.
 Veritus does business in western Pennsylvania as Blue Cross of Western Pennsylvania.
 Based in Pittsburgh, Veritus has evolved to become a total employee benefits management company, offering expertise on the design and delivery of employee benefit products to meet the changing needs of business and industry.
 Veritus has continually increased its customer base by offering dependable, high quality, affordable benefits products. The company's evolution has established it as a leader in the benefits industry, generating a business volume in excess of $6.5 billion a year and providing benefits for millions of people.
 Originating as a health insurance company, Veritus now offers the complete range of employee benefits and services, including health insurance, lis?urance, administrative services, cost management consulting, health and wellness promotion, and information systems and consulting for the health care provider.
 The company's life and disability products include group life, accidental death and dismemberment, dependent life, short- and long-term disability, short-term health and stop-loss insurance.
 Veritus offers administrative services to meet the needs of employers who require more than life and disability coverage. These services include Section 125 Programs, Pension Plan Administration, COBRA, 401(K) plans and Worker's Compensation Plan Administration.
 One of the few companies offering health promotion and wellness programs nationwide, Veritus assists businesses in collaring health benefit costs through corporate health audits and programs that provide incentives for employees to lead healthier lives and become more knowledgeable health care consumers.
 A leader in managed care, Veritus' medical management administration services help employers control employee health costs by making sure patients receive the proper treatment in the most appropriate setting. Innovative medical management programs include detailed studies of medical categories that significantly contribute to rising health care costs and new approaches to second surgical opinions, utilization management and coordination of care.
 By providing its information systems and management expertise to doctors, hospitals and clinics, Veritus is helping to ensure that health care benefits are delivered in a cost-effective manner. These services include complete, automated solutions for managing a hospital's business office, electronic claims capabilities and management consulting services that apply to virtually every aspect of health care delivery.
 Veritus' "excellent" rating by Standard and Poor's reflects the company's strong revenue-producing capability and long-term commitment to the development of products and services to meet its clients' diverse needs.
 In addition to meeting the needs of business and industry, Veritus believes in the importance of helping the community. Its HealthPLACE(R) Centers have been pioneers for community-based health education programs. And its Caring Program for Children(TM), the nation's first private initiative to provide free primary health care benefits to children of low-income families, has been so successful it has been replicated in 20 states.
 In addition to Pittsburgh, Veritus operates offices in Bethesda, Md.; Irvine, Calif.; Atlanta; Indianapolis; Dallas; and Salt Lake City.
