Help for Smaller Groups 

An analysis released by the Urban Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation shows that even though small businesses were hardest hit by the pandemic, the vast majority of those that survived were able to maintain health benefits. Nonetheless, maintaining health benefit programs has been increasingly difficult for small employers, especially in industries such as travel and hospitality. 

One option that small groups continue to find workable is level funding, which offers self-funded features like lower premium taxes, plan design flexibility and access to valuable claims data. By including stop-loss insurance, level funded plan sponsors can establish a monthly budget for health benefits. Stop loss reimburses the plan when claims exceed employer funding but in contrast to fully insured options, the plan retains the savings when claims are lower than anticipated. If your organization is searching for a way to attract and retain workers in a tough job market, talk to us to learn more about level funding.
