The Zane Partner Experience:

According to Josiah Allis, President, “The ZaneHRA is a critical piece in individual policy growth. Their software is key in selling a defined contribution plan. Other HRA providers only offer a document. The Zane Partner Platform provides us critical details about our clients and keeps us informed in real-time.

“The Zane Benefits team is customer centric, using direct feedback to further develop their software and processes. Their sales and support teams are very knowledgeable and one in purpose. We look to them as a current resource for Health Care Reform. We’ve always had a great experience with Zane Benefits.”

Client Testimonials

"When Design Health came to Classic Companies with a new concept in health care – discontinue the onerous annual process of choosing and administrating a one-size-fits-all group plan and allow your employees to choose a personal health policy customized for their unique needs at a lower price – it all sounded too good to be true, and we had many questions.  Design Health’s knowledgeable, professional and competent team had the answers to make us comfortable and confident in our decision to make the transition to a healthcare solution that truly is a win-win for both the employee and employer. Our employees have benefited with an average premium savings of over 20%.  As an employer, we have seen a significant reduction in the time spent administering our health benefit for our employees, as well as a reduction in cost.   

With the ZaneHRA platform to administer the program online, Design Health provides a unique healthcare program that every employer should seriously consider.  I highly recommend Design Health Financial Group and ZaneHRA."

"After many years of operating a group insurance plan for our employees we realized that the cost was about to skyrocket and neither the company or the employees would be able to accept the increase.  After reviewing a presentation by Josiah Allis and Peter Piplica from Design Health we knew we had a solution. Our main concern was to be able to offer coverage that was affordable and that all employees would qualify for. The result is that the employees have their own plan they can afford (and own personally even if they are no longer employed) and in almost every case at a lower price than our group rates and the company saved a substantial amount of employee benefit expense. It is a great program that I think every business that offers any type of coverage should consider."

"Design Health helped us drastically reduce our health care expense across our company.  More importantly, our employees now have better quality benefit options and reduced cost that will run with them regardless of their employment with us.  Once we completed our due diligence on this back in 2009, it was a very easy decision."

"Navigating the choppy waters of all the changes in the health industry has not been an easy task. However, Josiah Allis and his team at Design Health have helped us here at Rocky Mountain Rotomilling manage not only the understanding of all the changes but also our costs with regards to our health coverage. I would recommend any company that is currently comparing health care costs and coverage’s to take a serious look at what Josiah and his team have to offer."
