Recently, WellOne submitted its 2017 annual report to the Bureau of Primary Health Care. This report provides the federal government with various statistical and demographical information about WellOne and the patients that we serve. It is used to evaluate WellOne’‘s performance under the provisions of our federal grant. I would like to share with you some of the highlights from this report, which provide insights about the patients that we served in 2017:
