The Challenge:

Knowing the importance of employee health benefits for retaining a competitive staff, M.I.A. Healthcare needed to offer a health benefits solution that met yearly budgets, and gave employees choice regarding healthcare.

The Solution:

Through their insurance broker’s recommendation, M.I.A. Healthcare partnered with Zane Benefits in May 2012 to offer defined contribution health plan, ZaneHealth. M.I.A Healthcare now provides employees tax-deductible allowances which can be used for individual health insurance premiums. Employees use these funds tax-free to create a health insurance solution that best fit their families’ needs.

Nathan Christianson, CFO, stated the following, “Without ZaneHealth, we would not be providing the benefits to our employees that they are currently able to enjoy. With the changing landscape in healthcare costs and responsibilities of employers, Zane has been proactive in addressing questions with timely newsletters and email communications. They have helped us to formulate our plan for the future with regard to cost effective, yet competitive benefits for our employees.” 

Measurable Results:

  • M.I.A Healthcare offers health benefits for the first time using ZaneHealth

  • Employees receive tax-free dollars for use on private insurance
