New Buying Guide Helps Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Evaluate Stand-Alone HRA Providers

Zane Benefits, the online alternative to group health insurance, announced today the publication of a free eBook "The Stand-Alone HRA Buying Guide."  The new buying guide outlines how businesses can evaluate Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) providers.Stand-Alone HRA, Buying Guide, Health Reimbursement Arrangements, Small Business Health Insurance

Stand-Alone HRA plans are a new alternative to employer-sponsored group health insurance plans. Rather than paying the costs to provide a specific group health plan benefit, employers can fix their costs on a monthly basis by establishing a Stand-Alone HRA plan.

With a Stand-Alone HRA, both the business and employees save money. Here's how:

  • The business gives each employee a fixed dollar amount (an HRA allowance) that the employees choose how to spend.

  • Employees purchase their own individual policy directly from a health insurance company of their choice (typically, this saves the employee 25-50%).

  • Employees use their HRA allowance to reimburse themselves for their individual health insurance costs or other medical expenses such as doctor visits and prescription drugs.

  • The business fixes all costs and has complete control of the HRA plan.

Small and medium-sized business owners, non-profits, CEOs, CFOs, HR professionals and accountants should download this buying guide to learn how to evaluate Stand-Alone HRA providers.

The 18-page buying guide is available for free download at the website and covers the following topics:

  • How Stand-Alone HRAs benefits the businesses and employees

  • Why and how to use HRA Software

  • How to compare features with HRA Software

  • Questions to ask when researching providers

  • Your role in administering a successful Stand-Alone HRA plan
