  • 6. Premium Reimbursement Plan - What is it? #qualifyingprospects
  • 7. Premium Reimbursement Two primary options: ● Taxable Healthcare Allowance, or ● Tax-free Healthcare Reimbursement Plan (HRP)* * Must be designed to comply with Market Reforms 1. Businesses offer employees a monthly healthcare allowance to use on individual health insurance. 2. Employees purchase their own health plan and are reimbursed up to the amount available in their balance.
  • 8. ZaneHealth (Overview) #qualifyingprospects ZaneHealth is a simple, online solution that allows companies to reimburse employees tax-free for individual health insurance premiums. How ZaneHealth works: ● The business sets monthly healthcare allowances ● Employees purchase their own health plan and submit a reimbursement request through ZaneHealth ● ZaneHealth processes the request and the company reimburses employees for the approved expense
  • 9. What Problems Does Premium Reimbursement Solve? #qualifyingprospects
  • 10. The Three “R’s” #qualifyingprospects Health benefits are the #1 fringe benefit offered by employers for: ● Recruiting - remain competitive in their respective market ● Retention - improve or maintain existing employee morale ● ROI - keep employees healthy, productive, and happy Recruiting, Retention, and Return On Investment (ROI)
  • 11. Return On Investment - ROI #qualifyingprospects Businesses view employee health benefits as an investment - and rightfully so. Businesses should seek a better return on that investment (ROI). The rising cost of group health insurance puts the business at a disadvantage from the start. ROI = [(Payback - Investment)/Investment)]*100
