In increasing numbers, employers both large and small are opting to minimize healthcare expenses by taking the self-funding route. In fact, recent statistics indicate that some 40 million people are employed by organizations with 500 to 5,000 employees, prime candidates to benefit from stop loss insurance. By self-funding employee benefit programs rather than being saddled with more expensive group insurance plans, employers optimize their ROI.

The core issue is that it also can expose the company to financial risk from unexpected high claims costs. RxReins has it covered.
