(Trustmark) to buy its wholly-owned subsidiary, Trustmark Health Benefits (Health Benefits), which is a leading third-party health benefits administrator.

In a changing work environment, we will accelerate our efforts to become much more meaningful in the markets we serve by helping employers deliver benefits that create engaged and healthy teams.

Health Benefits will continue to support its current employers and members with the same level of service after the acquisition.
