    Topic: Best Practices for Self-Funded Health Plans

    With the rising costs of health care, employers are looking for effective ways to manage the cost of benefit plans for their employees—searching for the balance of quality medical care and managing the costs to the company and to the individual. With a self-funded health plan, employers assume fiduciary responsibility associated with health care costs in exchange for financial benefits and more choice in what their health plan actually offers.

    The insights in this presentation are intended to support employers in achieving the best possible performance from their health plan, especially when self-funding.

    In this session, participants will:

    • Identify the components of a self-funded plan, comparing and contrasting to fully insured           health plans.
    • Understand important health plan terminology
    • Identify fundamental cost factors
    • Learn actionable cost containment strategies
    • Discuss important considerations when planning a conversion to self-funding
