Why self-fund?

With the health benefits market changing so much, the costs of different plans can be all over the place. How would you like better, more cost-effective solutions for your clients to choose from?

Every year, most employers dread shopping around for their plan for the next year but they go to their broker and get several quotes, most employers decide on the most inexpensive plan, then the next year the rates raise with renewals and they are back in this vicious cycle repeating it every couple of years. As the employer or broker, it’s hard to feel like you have any control.

“Insurance can cost close to $10,000 per employee per year, so employees cost as much as $1 million a year. Self-Insurance can save 12 percent, or $120,000, which can be used to hire more employees or grow the business.” – Michael Turpin, Insurance executive.

The potential to save money increases from year to year.
