Forward Looking Statements

The Securities and Exchange Commission encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company's future prospects and make informed investment decisions. The carefirstmed.com web site contains such "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Words such as "may," "anticipate," "estimate," "expects," "projects," "intends," "plans," "believes" and words and terms of similar substance used in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance, identify forward-looking statement. All forward-looking statements are management's present expectations of future events and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things: our inability to further identify, develop and achieve commercial success for new products and technologies; the continued acceptance and use of our existing products and technologies; the development of competing products; our ability to protect our proprietary technologies; patent-infringement claims; risk of new, changing and competitive technologies and regulations in the United States and internationally; and other factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30th filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In light of these assumptions, risks and uncertainties, the results and events discussed in the forward-looking statements contained in the carefirstmed.com web site might not occur. You are cautioned to not rely on the forward-looking statements. CareFirst is not under any obligation, and expressly disclaims any obligation, to update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
