Our employees continue to be very happy with CDB and any issues have been very minor and very easily and quickly resolved. Recently, a member was having a hospital procedure and was trying to figure out how much his family would have to pay. When I told him it was $500.00 for an overnight stay, he could not believe it. He was so shocked and pleased he went to the CEO and told him how happy he was and thanked Huffy for making changes that benefited the employees so much.
