Self-Funded Dental/Vision/Hearing Reimbursement
A self-funded group health plan is an alternative to the traditional one-size-fits-all model, one in which the employer assumes the financial risk of providing health care benefits to its employees. Rather than paying a fixed premium to an insurance carrier, a self-insured employer pays for each claim out of pocket. Employers must have the financial resources to do so, and will typically set aside funds each month to cover the expected costs of administrative fees, stop-loss insurance, and their employees’ anticipated hospital and doctor bills.
The benefits of a self-funded group health plan are that they are subjected to fewer state regulations, allowing for more flexibility to meet the health care needs of employees. At the end of each year, the total amount of funds set aside is compared with the total claims paid out. The difference is often split between the employer and the insurance company.
