In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is an impressive 142%. Comparatively, HealthPlanOne's rate of growth for the period surpasses the median with a remarkable 351%. "We are honored to once again be part of this impressive list of companies," said William Stapleton, CEO of HealthPlanOne. "Our commitment to providing customers a superior experience in choosing the health insurance that best fits their needs, is becoming even more important in an environment of health reform. The ability to meet our customers need for health insurance and Medicare tools, information and advice will continue to fuel our growth." explained Stapleton.

"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
