Kansas City, MO (August 15, 2017) – Western Equipment Dealers Association (WEDA) today announced their endorsement of Tax Favored Benefits to provide health insurance for members. The Association embarked on a search of the health insurance marketplace in 2016 in response to needs expressed by members. As the health insurance market continues to contract, members are seeking cost-effective solutions to employee benefits to maintain a high quality workforce.

After interviewing many companies and reviewing several possible solutions, Tax Favored Benefits rose to the top as a provider that could serve the needs of WEDA members – large and small. “The Western Equipment Dealers Association’s decision to make Tax Favored Benefits its preferred health insurance provider is proof of their dedication to offering high-quality, value-added services to its members,” said David B. Wentz, President of Tax Favored Benefits. “We look forward to growing our relationship with the Association and members by answering their health insurance needs.”

According to John Schmeiser, CEO of Western Equipment Dealers Association, “WEDA is excited to offer a variety of health insurance options through Tax Favored Benefits. Members should understand that they were chosen not because we have a long-standing relationship with them in other areas, but because they offer a variety of solutions to fit the vast majority of members.” To learn more about the options available from Tax Favored Benefits, please call the Association’s hotline at 1-800-762-5616 or contact Doug Crable, TFB Group Services at 913-777-5199.
