Jean (Jeanie) LaFavor
Vice PresidentJeanie has worked in healthcare for more than 28 years and has significant experience with self-funding as well as in the managed care arena. She joined HealthEZ in 1998 and prior to that worked for the largest TPA in the country. Her career in healthcare began as a risk manager for a large multi-state employer, where she got to know our company as a client – so she has come full circle.
Jeanie particularly enjoys helping employers get through the health insurance maze – making sense of their benefit plans and showing them it doesn't have to be the mystery our industry has perpetuated. The innovative services HealthEZ offers, such as our medical payment service, are a huge hit with employers.
Jeanie has a B.A. degree from St. Cloud State University and has also done graduate work at the University of Minnesota. She is active in several national healthcare associations and has given speeches at many different conferences. Her favorite topics are Self-funding 101, Health Reform and Network Discount Myths.
When she is not working 24/7, she pursues her passion - competitive ballroom dancing. If she can't help you with your health insurance, she'd be happy to teach you the Cha Cha! Jeanie has a daughter, Kelly, and several “fur children” who are also her passion – along with the Minnesota Vikings!
