Self-Funding 101

Self-funding is an alternative to paying fixed premiums for group health insurance.  Typical plans can include coverage for medical, dental, vision or short-term disability.  Self-funding gives the employer the ability to tailor coverage for its employees.  The employer only pays for actual employee claims, avoiding the fees and overhead charged by insurance companies.
