    Self-Funded Key Players

    Profiles of a Self-Funded Employer

    • Relatively stable with less than 15 percent annual turnover

    • Financially secure and able to assume risk
    • Large group employers and in many cases, smaller employers who have been hesitant to self-fund because they thought it was for large companies

  • How It Works

    With a self-funded health plan, an employer puts aside funds to pay for anticipated health insurance claims for employees instead of paying a premium to a health insurance carrier. In this respect, the employer is the insurer and carries the risk associated with high insurance claims.

    A licensed third-party administrator, like HealthPlus Options, provides access to hospitals and health care professionals, processes claims, issues ID cards, manages employee questions, prepares reports and offers cost-containment initiatives such as wellness programs and care management. HealthPlus also has stop-loss solutions that protect the employer from individual catastrophic claims or higher than expected total expenses.

    Advantages of Self-Funding

    Self-funding is an option to consider for employers exhibiting the following characteristics:

    • Increased Financial Control — Fund claims as they come due, rather than in advance premium payments.
    • Lower Operating Costs — Funding claims directly reduces the administrative costs typically associated with an insurance carrier.
    • Flexibility — Design a health benefit plan that addresses both specific employee needs and company objectives.
    • Access to Data — Claims reports provide insight for employee engagement and care management planning.
