Mar 28, 2017
Allison Manno - Health efx of Eden Prairie
Allison Manno, senior vice president of Health e(fx) in Eden Prairie , was named one of the Most Influential Women in Benefit Advising by Employee Benefit Adviser (EBA) magazine in June. The awards recognize leading women in the employee benefits space who are successful in their own right, and who elevate the status of all women in the profession.
A national health care reform expert, Manno received the award for her leadership in helping employers, third-party service providers, and advisors manage medical benefits and ensure compliance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Manno is a co-founder of Health e(fx), which offers the most comprehensive, end-to-end ACA solution in the market. With Manno's guidance, Health e(fx) was the first to both successfully solve the ACA challenge and successfully submit automated, annual IRS Forms 1094/1095 for 2015 on behalf of its clients.
