Keenan to Provide Health Care Reform Analytics Services to California Schools Voluntary Employee Benefits Association

TORRANCE, Calif. – February 3, 2014 – Keenan, the largest privately held insurance brokerage and consulting firm in California, and the California Schools Voluntary Employee Benefits Association (VEBA) have announced a strategic alliance to provide VEBA’s member school districts a comprehensive analysis of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) potential impact on the districts’ employee health plan benefits as well as workforce analytics.

“Keenan’s Health Care Reform analytical tools are best in class. By performing this work, we can avoid unnecessary costs and penalties,” said VEBA General Manager George McGregor. “California’s schools are always facing financial and budgetary challenges, and VEBA’s member school districts and their associations will benefit significantly from having this impact study and workforce analytics completed by Keenan.”

Keenan has developed this unique and comprehensive program with a particular focus on public schools and other public agencies in California. The program will be rolled out to VEBA’s 64 member districts and the 120,000 school district employees it covers. The information developed in the study will provide the basis for each school district to develop a multi-year strategic plan to understand the financial impact of Health Care Reform and evaluate alternative scenarios to meet their specific needs. The project will be launched in early 2014.

“This is a unique alliance between Keenan and VEBA. The common interests are strong, and each organization complements the other’s attributes and strengths,” observed Keenan Senior Vice President John Scatterday. “Keenan and VEBA have a long and successful history of serving the needs of California’s public schools, and this adds to that tradition. We are extremely pleased about the prospect of working together and developing this new relationship with VEBA.”
