About this Webinar

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 ; 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

There are a range of choices – analogous to a spectrum of light – associated with the products and services that can be offered within a self-funded plan. The flexibility and value of self-funded plans is your ability to have choice. But, to make the right choices, broker partners must understand where a client may fall based on their financial goals and the needs of their employee population. This webinar provides and overview of the components and choice points available when building a self-funded plan. Whether new to self-funding, considering it, or operating this way for some time, you’ll gain insights into the different levers available to get the most of out what you are paying for your health care dollars.

  • Get the tools to ask the right questions when making decisions about each of the core components, including network, pharmacy management, medical management, telehealth (and telebehavioral health), and more
    • Assess the needs and maintenance required related to different choices
    • Understand the cause and effect of choices, and what is gained and/or lost when looking to create more or less control
  • Explore the gradient of options within different components – from traditional approaches to innovative plan designs – and spectrum of choices even still within those options
