Fully Insured or Self Funded which is best for your group?

The cost of employer sponsored health plans for groups have long been considered overpriced by many small business owners and their employees. With little exception these business owners have long been at the mercy of pricing influences such as benefit levels, doctor and hospital networks, state mandates, Affordable Care Act regulations (ACA), Drug companies costs, insurance company profits and more. 

It is and has been a widely accepted opinion that healthcare costs are far more expensive should be and healthcare related corporations are some of the highest profit earners yearly, often makes payers of healthcare insurance think there must be a more creative way to lower health care costs than what is currently offered by the ACA. (and there is .... if your group experiences moderate claim usage on a normal year).

Thankfully large groups 50+ have long had the advantage of lower costs. One being the choice of fully insured insurance plans or the option of self-funded plans to reap the benefits of lowering cost by reducing administration expenses, purchasing stop loss or reinsurance for larger claims at a specific dollar amount and using a predetermined claims fund of premiums for all claims below the stop loss / reinsurance amount. Today approximately 66% of employees in the groups are already in a self funded (really large groups) or partially self funded plans for those not so large.

Today in the small group plan market (groups of 3 to 50) the option of a partially self funded program has not existed. However these smaller groups that have moderate to lower claims experience could easily be saving thousands and thousands of dollars. Which begs the question what is the best health insurance for small business owners?  

When considering the limited options of conventional product offerings by the insurance carriers who control the small group market it could be to a small employers benefit to get a quote on a self funded plan and see just how much premium could be saved by both the employer and employees of a healthier group. 

Many agents dismiss the credibility and value of a self funded plan to small employers with a healthy group as "risky". The fact is, any risk above the claims account "is covered" by the stop loss coverage and reinsurance limits which are "insured and guaranteed" in the plan just as a fully insured plan.  

It is to your advantage to request a quote and see why a self funded plan is the best health plan for small business owners.
