The Challenge:

MAHA depends on health benefits for recruiting and retaining top employees.  When their group health plan exceeded internal budgets, MAHA needed a new health benefits solution that offered the same level of health care for its employees while remaining within budget.

The Solution:

MAHA partnered with Zane Benefits in March 2010 to offer a GroupHRA. This created the ability to increase the organization’s group health care deductible and lower overall costs. Employees enjoy the same level of insurance coverage and pay less for it.

Regina Cook, Assistant Director of Administration stated the following, “The GroupHRA was a tailor-made answer for our organization. It was exactly what we were looking for to avoid another increase in health care costs. The Zane Benefits website is easy to use and their people are always available. I enjoy the confidentiality created through the software.  The sales process was easy, which is important to me, as we are a busy organization. The savings are considerable using the GroupHRA.”

Measurable Results:

  • Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliances generates considerable savings using GroupHRA

  • Employees enjoy the same level of health benefits and pay less for it.
