One Member's Testimonial

Same Day ACH Publication

Scott Lambert, Treasury Senior Director, Cigna Corporation

​ "Cigna has gained a number of benefits through its Affiliate Program membership. With the membership, my team has the opportunity to review and comment on proposed ACH Rules changes that can have a potential industry impact. In addition, we participate in the quarterly ACH Rules update webinars and hear directly from NACHA regarding the details and timing of pending changes. Another benefit includes access to NACHA industry experts. Having this access was critical when clarifying Healthcare EFT format changes associated with recent regulatory changes. For these reasons, I continue to find Cigna's Affiliate Program membership to be very valuable."
