WHAT IS SELF-FUNDED INSURANCE

SELF FUNDED INSURANCE IS A PLAN IN WHICH THE EMPLOYER ASSUMES DIRECT RESPONSIBILITY FOR FINANCING HEALTHCARE CLAIMS. THIS TENDS TO LOWER EXPENSES AND IMPROVE CASH FLOW SINCE THE EMPLOYER ONLY PAYS FOR THE HEALTHCARE, THEIR PARTICIPANTS USE A THIRD PARTY ADMINISTRATOR OR TPA IS CONTRACTED FOR CLAIMS PAYMENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE.

WITH A SELF FUNDED PLAN, EMPLOYERS GAIN GREATER CONTROL OVER PLAN DESIGN. SELF FUNDING ALLOWS EMPLOYERS, IN CONSULTATION WITH THEIR BROKER, THE FLEXIBILITY TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BENEFITS TO ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF THE PLAN AND ITS PARTICIPANTS.
