The Quoting Tool

The Zenefits Quoting tool allows brokers & benefits administrators to quickly quote small group ACA plans for their group(s). The quoting tool automatically pulls in preexisting employee data such as age, date of birth, and dependent info to populate small group plan rates in a streamlined process for users. Zenefits stores carrier metadata on plan structure in our system in order to make quoting easy on you.
