What is stop loss insurance?
Stop Loss insurance puts a cap on the upper-end of what a self-insured employer (business or municipality) pays for health insurance if insurance claims are unexpectedly high from a large number of employees or their families or if one employee is diagnosed with an illness for which the treatments are expensive and ongoing. Not all stop loss carriers or brokers specialize in stop loss insurance. Policies coverage can vary widely so choose a trusted resource to guide you through the process to a plan that meets your needs and your budget.
What is self-funded insurance?
Organizations that are self-insured maintain a fund from which medical insurance claims are paid when employees use their health insurance instead of being fully insured. Self-insuring is a good decision for many medium sized organizations and is the standard for cities, towns, and large businesses. There are risks involved, however, so the decision to self-insure should not be taken lightly.
