Health Alliance Plan (HAP) is launching a new branding initiative in anticipation of the changes health plans will face in providing and marketing their products and services under health care reform.

According to Donna S. Reid, HAP’s Vice President, Marketing & Communications Strategy, HAP launched a branding initiative recently that plays on HAP’s perceived strength as a nonprofit health plan company known for compassion, personalized attention and customer relationships reinforced by innovative Metaphor Study research.

The initiative kicked off publicly with a bold, new television spot immediately before, during and after the 84th Academy Awards,broadcast in southeast Michigan on WXYZ-TV7. Advertising on Detroit-area billboards, radio stations, newspapers and websites followed Feb. 27. — G.G.
