Tony is always on the run. Really. He’s over halfway to his goal of completing 100 marathons. The same kind of discipline it takes to train for long-distance runs also serves Tony well in the business world. Tony has over 25 years of experience with Group Health and Welfare Plan compliance under IRS, DOL and HHS regulations. He frequently lectures on Healthcare Reform Legislation, Section 125 plan compliance, Wellness initiatives, Consumer Driven Health Plans, HIPAA Privacy and Security, COBRA interpretation, ERISA fiduciary responsibilities and, most recently, the healthcare reform Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

He provides regulatory compliance in all areas of employee benefits and investment consultation services offered by the Firm, with particular emphasis on Group Health Plan Federal Mandates. Tony sets the standard for his team by being willing to go the distance to satisfy their clients’ individual benefits needs. His team has the training and discipline necessary to create proactive, cutting-edge solutions based on experience, research and current industry trends. No matter what the challenge, the goal remains the same — provide the best, most reliable products available, combined with outstanding customer service. No matter how large or small the client, Tony’s group benefits team provides a level of expertise for a price that is the same or less than the client has paid in the past. That kind of service is not widely available in the industry marketplace and sets SilverStone Group apart from its competitors.

Tony is a member of several professional associations including the Nebraska State Bar Association and Nebraska State Society of CPAs and serves as a member of the Adjunct Faculty of the Creighton University School of Law. How does he manage to do all this and train for marathons? Through discipline and a desire to see things through. 59 down, Tony, and only 41 to go!
