SELF-FUNDED HEALTH PLANS
With the rise in healthcare premiums, employers are turning away from traditional fully insured plans and
becoming self-funded to save thousands in premiums along with many other benefits.
In 2015, 63% of covered workers were enrolled
in a health plan that was either partially
or completely self-funded.
This increase from 49% in 2000, can be attributed to
- rising insurance premium costs,
- employers' frustration with fully insured plans,
- limitations of plan design,
- lack of cost containment efforts,
- inferior customer service from insurance companies, or
- inaccessibility of data about employees’ health needs.
This upward trend in self-funding shows a strong desire by employers to have more control over cash flow and plan design (benefits) -- the two main differences between fully funded and self-funded plans.
Self-funded plans offer solutions to address these issues and allow improved cash management and controls for the employers.
Crucial to the success of any self-funded plan is the selection of a contract plan administrator, commonly known as a "Third Party Administrator" or "TPA". Integrity Administrators has a long enviable history in the Self Funded administration field.
