The Challenge:

Maintainging motivated employees is a constant goal at the Los Lunas Animal Clinic (LLAC). It if often difficult to keep the work energy up. Healthcare benefits help increase motivation, but when LLAC's group health insurance premiums increased at renewal, they were in search of another option.   

The Solution:

In January 2014, LLAC partnered with Zane Benefits to provide an affordable healthcare benefit to their employees. With ZaneHealth, employees coud now use a monthly “defined contribution” to help pay for their individual health insurance premiums. Moving LLAC employees from their group health insurance plan to the ZaneHealth definied contribution plan was seamless with additional help from Zane Benefits staff.

Linda Dowling stated, “We must have spent thirty to forty hours researching on the internet when we found Zane Benefits. We spent a lot of time talking with Zane Benefits staff to make sure it was the best thing for the clinic while staying compliant and providing relief to the staff.[Implementing the ZaneHealth plan] went perfectly. We had somebody on the phone that held our hand through the process and made sure the transition happened the way it was supposed to.”

Measurable Results:

  • Employee benefits are key to a motivated workplace environment and LLAC utilized ZaneBenefits as a way to continue offering affordable healthcare options.

  • LLAC and Zane Benefits worked closely to ensure a seamless transition for their employees—offering additional resources and support to help them understand their healthcare benefits.
