Julie Benafield, a former Arkansas insurance commissioner, said Monday that she's formed a new company called The Benafield Group PLLC that will offer government affairs consulting on regulatory issues.

Benafield was also CEO of the Arkansas Workers' Compensation Commission and a regulatory affairs specialist for United Healthcare.

"The federal government and state governments are implementing some of the broadest regulations on businesses and local governments in our lifetime as a result of the [Affordable Care Act]," Benafield said in a news release. "My experience in health care insurance and government regulation makes me a valuable resource for an organization, large or small, to gain insight and understanding of the PPACA so that they make the right decisions on how to implement this new program."
