Big-business benefits. Small-business price

The Self-Funded Program lets you enjoy the benefits of self-funding while we handle the details

Rethinking your Employee Health-Benefit Plan? Directly funding your own Health-Benefit Plan can help you control your group’s health care costs — now, and for years to come.

Not only does our Self-Funded Program usually cost less than a more traditional Health Benefit Plan, but it’s also built to ensure your savings continue:

Your money in your claims account goes exclusively to your group’s claims expenses

If your group’s claims are less than expected, your savings can be significant

If your group’s claims are larger than expected, Stop-Loss Insurance protects your finances

You have the opportunity to receive money back if you don’t use all the funds from your claims account

By choosing our Self-Funded Program, you gain access to our unique, complete package of services and Insurance Protection that takes the uncertainty and guesswork out of self-funding:
