The Zane Benefits software platform is accessed online through a low-cost monthly subscription. Once your business is set up on the platform, administration is taken care of in four basic steps:
1. With ZaneHealth, your company sets a monthly allowance — a "defined contribution"—that accrues in your employees’ healthcare balance. Allowances are typically based on family status or job criteria.
2. Employees use a private exchange or health insurance marketplace to choose their own individual insurance policy. Since they are enrolling in their own plan, they get to choose their own coverage and benefit levels—according to their individual needs.
3. The software verifies premium expenses submitted by the employee, and you use the system to reimburse the employee for their health plan costs—up to their available healthcare balance.
4. The software works alongside your payroll system, and handles the verified reimbursements as tax-free—facilitating tax savings for both parties.
Small business owners can avoid the hassle and expense associated with traditional employer insurance plans by reimbursing health premiums instead of paying them. Watch this video to learn the four simple steps for setting up a legally compliant reimbursement health benefits plan.
