Park City, UT (PRWEB) April 03, 2012

Today, Zane Benefits, Inc., a leader in Defined Contribution Health Plans and Private Health Exchanges, announced its new website, designed to educate employers, accountants, and health insurance professionals about the new federal regulations allowing simplified employer health benefits.

As group health insurance costs continue to rise, employers are looking for ways to offer health benefits at a lower price. Zane Benefits online defined contribution health plan allows an employer to name its price. Rather than paying the costs to provide a specific group health plan (a “defined benefit”), employers instead fix their costs by establishing a monthly dollar amount (a defined contribution) that employees choose how to spend.

The new highlights the companys online health benefits software that enables small businesses to implement and administer a defined contribution health plan in less than five minutes per month.

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court completed final arguments in United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit Case 11-398 on the constitutionality of the Health Reform law scheduled to take effect in 2014. Regardless of which way the Court rules, it is clear that the new defined contribution method for small business health benefits will stand.

According to Rick Lindquist, President of Zane Benefits, It’s time to reshape the way we think about employee health benefits. Today, more than 3 million small businesses do not offer health benefits to their employees due to cost, participation, or administrative requirements. And, that number is expected to increase by 2014 regardless of health care reform.

According to the website, the two primary benefits of Zanes online program include:

1. No Minimum Contributions Requirements This allows a small business to define a contribution it can afford.

2. No Minimum Participation Requirements This allows a small business to set its own eligibility and/or participation requirements.

Using the Zane program, employers make available a tax-free monthly allowance that employees use to purchase their own individual policy directly from a carrier or independent licensed health insurance agent. Or, if an employer is not able to provide an allowance for certain employees, such employees may use a portion of their pre-tax salary to purchase a policy. This increases the employees after-tax purchasing power by 20 to 40 percent and also reduces the companys payroll liabilities.

Im particularly pleased we are announcing our new online education center on the same day that the entire nation is focused on health benefits, said Professor Paul Zane Pilzer, the Founder of Zane Benefits and the author of the book The New Health Insurance Solution.

Most people dont realize that small employers with less than 50 employees are exempt from the employer mandates in the Health Care Reform bill, Pilzer added. Small employers today benefit from the increased availability of affordable individual policies regardless of what the U.S. Supreme Court eventually rules on the bill.

About Zane Benefits, Inc.

Zane Benefits, Inc, a software company, helps insurance brokers, accountants, and employers take advantage of new defined contribution health benefits and private exchanges via its proprietary SaaS online health benefits software. Zane Benefits does not sell insurance. Using Zanes platform, insurance professionals and accountants offer their clients a defined contribution health plan with multiple individual health insurance options via a private health exchange of their choice.

Remember when the college experience meant moving away from home, living in dorms, cheering for your football team, and was something pretty much reserved for 17 and 18 year old high school graduates? Education has changed and College Complete ( or 877-543-2655) is there to help people find their way. College Complete is announcing the expansion of its website to include research on hundreds of jobs, their educational needs, employment expectations and typical salaries with [

Today, adult learners between the ages of 20 and 60 are returning to school in record numbers, taking advantage of federal financial aid options, as well as advancements in educational technologies that facilitate interactive online learning. Some are completing degrees that they started long ago, some are attaining the degree they always wanted, and some are seeking the short-term vocational training needed to capitalize on the ever-growing number of skilled trade job opportunities. Whatever their motivation, one thing is for certain this new approach to higher education is completely redefining the college experience.

Driven by one of the toughest economic eras in recent memory, these non-traditional students are the fastest growing group in higher education and College Complete was formed with them in mind., a no-cost educational matching service based in Deerfield Beach, FL, has been working with adult learners since 2010, helping them identify and locate school and program options that both fit their lifestyle, and that help them achieve their personal or career growth goals.

The best thing we can do for our students is to show them that they have options, says Jason Shatzkamer, Co-Founder and President at College Complete, Its remarkable how well the schools, themselves, have adapted to their new audience, offering online, night, and weekend classes to allow for non-traditional students, but at the same time it can be difficult for students to figure out which of these schools and options is the right one for them.

College Complete works with students from any state, looking for any degree program or certification, from dog grooming, to Microsoft and Cisco certifications, to plumbers and electricians, to teachers and nurses, all the way up to Doctorate in Criminal Justice. Similar to a high school guidance counselor, College Complete helps students identify between one and three schools, and then connects them directly with these schools, along with a checklist of questions to help compare and contrast, eliminating the confusion associated with taking that first and most important step. has gone to great lengths to inform the public of their service, including sponsoring the Number 6 Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and tapping driver Justin Lofton as their spokesperson to help bring College Completes message to the tens of millions of NASCAR fans around the world.

And although additional television and online awareness campaigns are planned for 2012-13, the message is already taking hold. Since opening with 15 employees just over a year ago, College Complete has more than doubled its workforce to accommodate the increase in student demand, and plans to double yet again over the course of this year, creating more than 75 jobs in its Deerfield Beach, Florida headquarters. No prior experience in the educational field is needed for these new positions, as College Complete has created a best of breed technology and training program to support their Education Advocates.

Although many of the hands-on programs and trades do require on-site classes, many adult learners are leveraging accredited online educational institutions (including state schools), where they now have the ability to attain the degrees they were once only able to get on campus, obtaining the education that they desire while still working full time jobs.

Recent government studies confirm that an education pays – the Bureau of Labor and Statistics most recent report on March 9, 2012 showed that education level has a direct relationship with unemployment.
