Healthcare Premiums are on the rise. Traditional Healthcare is starting to be replaced by self-funded healthcare to save thousands in premiums. While the benefits that are self-funded are extremely attractive, most employers don’t want to perform the task of administering the plan which includes processing and paying claims, as well as other functions. Some employers will contact a Third Party Administrator to handle this responsibility for them.

Self-Funded Health Plans

Fully Insured

Self-Funded

A fully insured health plan can cut the premium price by half for an employer without sacrificing benefits when the employer elects to self- fund the employee’s deductible. When an employer uses a Third Party Administrator, the self- funded portion is handled by the TPA for the employer, in addition to paying claims only when services occur.

Fully Insured Health Plan

This trust fund plan includes Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and Pension access. This plan usually covers employees and their dependents in a specific industry.  It is managed by a joint board of union and employer trustees that work together to benefit both the employee and union members. This type of plan has complex eligibility rules, such as Skip-Month Eligibility. The employer transmits hours worked for current month to ensure coverage for the following month.  In addition, this plan can provide multiple plan designs, as well as a defined contribution or benefit plan for retirees.

Taft-Hartley Welfare Health Plan

We use DentAssure to fully insure members via Indemnity or PPO plans offering coverage through Dental Health Alliance and EyeMed carriers across the nation.

Dental/Vision Plans

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a federal law that sets minimum standards for most voluntarily established pension and health plans in private industry to provide protection for individuals in these plans. We use our cost-effective approaches to minimize cost and manage complex compliance issues. 

ERISA Plans

This benefit coverage can be used for Individual Specific Coverage or Aggregate Group Coverage. This coverage is designed to minimize the risk of medical claims an employee or group of employees incur.
