Controlling Health Care Costs With Self-Funded Plan Options
|Date / Time:
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act creates incentives for certain employers to self-insure health care coverage. For example, self-insured plans are not subject to the small-group rating regulations, risk adjustment policies, and essential health benefits provisions newly imposed by PPACA. Self-insured businesses are also exempt from many state insurance regulations.
This topic examines the factors that may motivate employers to self-insure, and the ways incentives to self-insure might change after PPACA becomes effective. The topic also will discuss how self-insurance influences benefit design, benefit claims decisions, and financial exposure.
Finally, the program will offer practical tips to employers facing this certain uncertainty in the group health care context.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
