Business Owners Only

Level – Funded Group Health Insurance

These plans provide an attractive and innovative alternative to traditional health insurance solutions. The industries improved version at self-funding, level funded plans employers can budget for small, predictable claims-and use stop loss protection to protect their business from unpredictable catastrophic claims. This allows both the cost reduction in premiums, access to excess claims fund (if any) while adding the stop-loss on downside protection if claims are exceeded. Level-Funded can be practical and cost effective for groups with as few as 10 participating employees.

Reduced Fixed Costs – All health insurance plans have administrative costs associated with the payment of claims. A partially self-funded plan typically saves 20% on administrative costs over a traditional health insurance plan.

Improve  Cash Flow – Unlike traditional plans where you pay a premium that funds claims if and when they occur, claims under a partially self-funded plan are paid only when they occur. Rather than paying a set amount to an insurance company every month, you keep and earn interest on your money and only pay for actual claims submitted.

Customize Plan Flexibility – With a partially self-funding health plan, you have limitless options for designing the best possible plan for your business. Co-pays, coinsurance, deductibles, covered benefits, and excluded benefits can all be tailored to meet the needs of your employees with limited risk.
