ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ron Goldstein, president and chief executive officer of CHOICE Administrators, will discuss the national movement toward health insurance exchanges at the Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters’ (SAHU) monthly luncheon on April 18.

Goldstein will also discuss the broker’s role in the California Public Exchange currently being established as well as share his recommendations as to what brokers should be doing now as the marketplace continues to evolve.
