I'm always happy to bring awareness to the health care industry and the money practices within it. After all, without health we have nothing.
Quapaw, Oklahoma (PRWEB) August 31, 2016
Robert Weaver, a Quapaw tribal member, makes the cover of the September 2016 issue of Native Oklahoma magazine. Native Oklahoma is a monthly publication of the Native American Times, Oklahoma’s online inter-tribal news source owned by Lisa Snell. Weaver, president and CEO of the Native American insurance management firm RWI Benefits, LLC, works to improve the health and wellness of native people through affordable health care. In the September issue, his business is also profiled in an article titled "Robert Weaver: Making health care affordable for Indian Country."
As a teenager, Robert Weaver lost a cousin to suicide. That experience stuck with him. At that time, finding adequate, accessible health insurance coverage for mental health issues was very difficult. As an adult, he recognized a need to educate and protect tribal leaders from insurance providers eager to cash in on a lack of knowledge about reasonable coverage costs. Since 2007, his business has been committed to leveling the playing field for Native Americans and eliminating these disparities.
"I am honored to be on the cover of this well-respected magazine within Indian Country," says Robert Weaver, RWI Benefits, LLC, president. "I'm always happy to bring awareness to the health care industry and the money practices within it. After all, without health we have nothing."
