With the recent addition of benefits industry veteran Steve Parsons, the Chelko Consulting Group continues to expand its team of subject matter experts.

Throughout his career, Steve has focused on optimizing the value of clients’ employee benefits programs. His insights, creativity, and actuarial expertise have been key in building foundations for short- and long-term plan management success.

Prior to joining Chelko, Steve was a partner with two regional consulting firms where he established himself as a healthcare industry expert through his years of collaboration and risk management work with Ohio-based providers.

Established in 2001 to provide high value, conflict free, and transparent medical, life, and disability benefits consulting services to medium- and large-size employers, Chelko has developed a reputation for its data-driven process, actionable insights, and impressive results on behalf of a growing list of Fortune 500 clients. The firm has particularly distinguished itself by applying its clinical and management expertise to centers of excellence, prescription drug benefits, specialty drugs, and the emerging field of ultra-expensive cell and gene therapies.
