On April 25 at Impact Hub in Seattle, Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Patty Murray, Health Benefit Exchange CEO Richard Onizuka, and Health Care Authority Director Dorothy Teeters thanked Health Benefit Exchange in-person assisters and board members for their outstanding work in helping individuals get health insurance through the Washington State Health Benefit Exchange.

Among those recognized were Suzanne Pak and Sunny Cho of Cornerstone Medical Services (CMS). Pak is the chief operating officer for CMS and has recently been appointed to the Washington State Health Benefit Exchange’s Outreach Technical Advisory Committee.

Cho is the director of case management for CMS. She was recognized as an outstanding in-person assister, having enrolled over 600 individuals in expanded Medicaid and Qualified Health Plans, and trained and managed 10 other assisters. (end)
