Book Predicts End of Employer-Provided Health Insurance by 2025
November 7, 2014
Salt Lake City, UT. Zane Benefits, Inc., which helps businesses reimburse employees for individual health insurance plans, announced today its Amazon #1 Best-Seller, The End of Employer-Provided Health Insurance: Why It’s Good for You and Your Company - now available at all major retailers.
According to Rick Lindquist, President of Zane Benefits, “Since 2006, Zane Benefits has been on a mission to bring the benefits of individual health insurance to business owners and their employees. In an effort to share our learnings, I, along with our founder Paul Zane Pilzer, have co-authored The End of Employer-Provided Health Insurance, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.”
The book predicts that, over the next 10 years, 100 million Americans will move from employer-provided to individually purchased health insurance.
According the official book summary, the book is written and organized for three types of readers:
1. Insurance agents, CPAs, and financial consultants. Part I explains why the end of employer-provided health insurance is inevitable.
2. Employees of all U.S. companies. Part II is a consumer’s guide to navigating the new individual health insurance market.
3. Owners of small and medium-sized businesses. Part III is an employer’s guide to transitioning to defined contribution healthcare and individual health plans.
According to the Amazon.com listing, the techniques outlined in the book will help consumers and employers save money on on health insurance by migrating from employer-provided coverage to employer-funded individual plans at a total cost that is 20 to 60 percent lower for the same coverage.
“We are at the beginning of a paradigm shift in the way businesses offer employee health benefits and the way Americans get health insurance,” Lindquist says. “A shift from an employer-driven defined benefit model to an individual-driven defined contribution model.”
According to Lindquist, this parallels a similar shift in employer-provided retirement benefits that took place two to three decades ago from defined benefit to defined contribution retirement plans.
