Infographic Helps Brokers and Business Owners Understand the Future of Small Business Health Insurance


Zane Benefits, which provides small businesses with simple and friendly healthcare solutions, announced today the publication an original infographic "The End of Small Business Health Insurance."

The new infographic is based on Zane Benefits' Whitepaper, and depicts why 60% of small businesses are expected to abandon group health insurance in favor of individual health insurance and Defined Contribution by 2017.

As the infographic outlines, the primary reason for the shift is that the cost of traditional group health insurance is unsustainable. And, there are new advantages to individual health insurance such as choice, portability, guaranteed-issue, and lower costs.

As small businesses shift employees to the Individual Market, they are not dropping health benefits altogether. Instead, they are reimbursing employees for individual health insurance with a Defined Contribution Health Plan.

According to Zane Benefits, this model of Defined Contribution saves small businesses 20% to 60% on healthcare costs.

The free infographic is available at the zanebenefits.com website (no download required) and provides a look the following topics:

  • A brief history of small business health insurance

  • 4 reasons individual health insurance is better

  • How small businesses can reimburse for individual health insurance

  • Why there is no longer a need for traditional group health insurance
