Healthcare costs continue to increase at an alarming rate putting pressure on employers and their benefit packages.  Many employers are growing tired of purchasing healthcare through 12-month, fully-insured cycles and hoping for reasonable renewals.  This webinar presents a unique approach to mitigate the 'hope' associated with self-insured medical plans.  We will also discuss how this approach puts the focus on developing effective strategies to manage the true drivers of healthcare costs.

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants will understand:
  • The basic structure of self-insuring a medical plan through a group captive
  • How to trade hope for an effective strategy to manage healthcare costs
  • Inefficiencies associated with purchasing fully-insured medical plans in 12-month cycles
