Tired of increasing health care costs? We’re here to help you take control.
HOW DOES SELF-FUNDING WORK?
With a self-funded health plan you will enjoy far more flexibility and an opportunity to keep any savings that result when claims are lower than expected. Your plan is designed to meet the unique needs of your organization and the information you gain will help you better manage the risks and future costs of healthcare.
After careful review of your company’s needs, an appropriate amount is set for your trust fund.
Employees and employers contribute to the company fund.
When your employees receive care, the bill is paid from this fund.
It’s time to look at a new way of funding your health care benefits.
HOW DOES THIS BENEFIT YOU?
With a self-funded plan, we help you determine the amount of risk your company can assume and secure stop loss insurance to reimburse claims that exceed expected levels.
You control your plan design.
No extra expenses for insurance company premiums.
Rates are based exclusively on YOUR workforce.
Interest accumulates on money sitting in your fund.
Cash flow is freed up for other expenses.
