Self-funding is an alternative method of paying for your company’s health insurance. The easiest way to understand it is to compare it to the more traditional fully insured program. Insurance is all about the sharing of risk. When you buy regular insurance, you pay a set premium to the insurance company. The premium you pay is based on a process called underwriting. The insurer considers the health information of your employees, the size of your company, and past claims experience, to come up with a premium that they calculate will cover the cost of your anticipated claims and still provide them a healthy profit.

Under a self-funded model, instead of paying a set premium to an insurance carrier, your organization pays claims as they are incurred by your employees. With most self-funded health plans, particularly with small to mid-size employer groups, the company also purchases stop loss insurance to limit their risk exposure. To learn more, click here.
