Evolving Funding Options for Employee Benefit Programs
Please join us as our speaker, Rosemary Manning Hughes, discusses the evolution of medical insurance.As medical insurance continues to evolve, companies are evaluating how best to fund their employee benefit programs -- either through traditional means of fully-insured and self-insured plans with stop loss or through the use of captives and risk sharing arrangements.
