How Reimbursement Amounts are Calculated

As the Plan Administrator for your Zane Plan, you may view a summary of your employees’ ledgers from your Account Dashboard. This summary shows information used to calculate the reimbursements due.

Unpaid Claims shows the amount of approved claims that have not been reimbursed. These amounts will be reimbursed to your employees, up to the amount of their balance. Thus, Reimbursements Due are the lesser of the two amounts found in your employees’ Balance and Unpaid Claims. For further assistance, please see: How to View Participants’ Pending and Approved ZaneHealth Claims.

Do you know of another company who would benefit from a Zane Plan? Your company can earn $100 by referring them. And, the company you refer will get their first month free!
