Group Health Insurance For Groups of 21 or more employees
If you have at least 21 employees
and the majority of your employees are healthy, you will
be able to substantially reduce your health insurance premiums
without loss of coverage.
This is a self-funding alternative to traditional health
group health insurance plans. This is not a fully self-insured
plan where you are completely at risk. On the contrary,
you have specific limits to your liability and there is
insurance in place to meet excessive medical costs.
With a traditional plan you are paying an insurance carrier
to assume millions of dollars of risk for all of your employees.
With a partially self-funding arrangement, you are accepting
part of the risk and the insurance company is taking on
the rest. However, unlike other group health insurance plans,
a self-funded plan will return money to you at the end of
the year. Furthermore, you can make arrangements to fund
the expenses as they occur. This means you hold on to the
money and not the insurance company.
Why would you want to pay health insurance premiums
for a plan that assumes that all of your employees will
spend millions of dollars a year on medical expenses?
That is really what is happening. You pay $3000 to $4000
a year for an employees premium and they go to the doctor
once or twice and get a prescription of a hundred bucks.
Its insane to keep paying for this type of insurance.
If you have employees with severe illnesses with medical
expenses running hundreds of thousands of dollars a year
on an ongoing basis, then this plan is not for you. But,
if the illness has passed and the expenses are now stabilized,
this still might save you a lot of money.
You can design just about any plan you want. You don't
have to be confined to the "canned" plans the
insurance company offers you. These are major medical PPO
plans with all the "bells and whistles". Plus,
you can use HRA accounts and save even more money.
It is difficult to completely show all of the advantages
of this type of plan on a web site. However, we have benefits
consultants that will give you a free evaluation and quote.
