Self-Funding for Small Business Employers

Managing healthcare programs is challenging. Understanding self-funding doesn’t have to be. This course introduces you to the differing types of funding options available with an emphasis on self-funding and the advantages for smaller employers. A brief overview of stop loss insurance will be covered to help participants understand how self-funding and stop loss work together.

Attendees will learn about the components of funding options for employers along with key differences dependent on the funding type elected. Additionally, there will be a high-level review and cost comparison of self-funding to fully insured costs.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the general concept of and advantages of self-funding.
  • Recognize the importance of aggregate stop loss and individual stop loss.
  • Describe how self-funding and stop loss work together.
