Employers that sponsor a group health plan for their employees may choose to self-fund the plan instead of purchasing health insurance. The decision to self-fund is complex and involves strategic decision-making regarding plan design, cost-containment strategies, whether to purchase stop-loss insurance, and plan administration. This online certificate includes four required courses that will review these decision points in detail.

Required courses:

  • Self-Funded Health Plan Basics
  • Self-Funded Health Plans: Understanding Stop-Loss Insurance
  • Self-Funded Health Plans: Cost Containment Strategies
  • Self-Funded Health Plans: Plan Administration

While supplies last, you will also receive a copy of the book Self-Funding Health Benefit Plans shipped to you at no cost!
