Self Funded Risk Management: A Stop Loss Perspective

1 Hour CE

For benefits professionals thinking about, or already working in, self-funding and stop loss insurance this one hour CE will level-up your understanding of the Marketplace.  Greg Edwards and Steve Butz, both Executive Vice Presidents at Certus Management Group, will lead you through an advanced course about the relationship between employers / employer plans and carriers.

The stop loss carrier protecting a self-funded plan is not an adversary but rather should be considered a consultative partner to the plan and plan sponsor.  During this course you will come away with an understanding that the employer and stop loss carrier share in the risk and responsibility for the payment of claims.  In fact, they are the only two entities in the self-funded equation that are writing checks.  As a result both parties have an equal and vested interest in making certain claims are paid responsibly and appropriately.  This is what we consider the “perfect alignment” between plan sponsor and stop loss carrier.

The stop loss carrier is uniquely equipped to advise the plan sponsor on risk management strategies as well as to provide ongoing oversight of these strategies.  “We see thousands of RFP’s, self-funded plans, plan documents, and cost containment components” says Edwards.  “It’s our business to deal with the complications and abuses within that system”.

This is an advanced course but isn’t overly complicated.  The concepts here will help refine your approach and encourage everyone to treat carriers as counsel to employers and self-funded plans.
