Upcoming Webinar: Advanced Self-Funding

Written by

Many employers have benefitted greatly from having some type of self-funded arrangement where they participate in the actual claims experience of their employees with protection from catastrophic claims. At Fall River, self-funded plans are one of our major areas of expertise, and we view self-funding as a five-step spectrum, rather than just a yes/no question. Register for our Advanced Self Funding Webinar here. 

Many employers are offering High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs) to their workforce these days, and they sometimes express concern that members with chronic conditions may delay much-needed routine care because of the financial burden they experience while meeting their deductible.

Good news is on the horizon! On July 17, 2019, the IRS expanded the list of services considered preventive and therefore able to be covered by insurance before or at a reduced deductible.

Insuring Your Bundle of Joy

Written by

Having a baby can be extremely exciting, and there are so many things to prepare for and think about! In addition to the many other things going through your mind, here a few reminders regarding insuring your new bundle of joy: 

Employers are often considering ways to enhance their benefits packages and attract great employees. Some employers might increase their contributions towards the health plans or 401(k) matching contributions, but another option is to offer an opt-out payment for those employees waiving the company-sponsored health coverage. At Fall River we are asked about this option frequently, and we continue to evaluate the pros and cons as well as the rules of doing so.

Saving Money with Direct Primary Care

Written by

Direct Primary Care (DPC), aka “concierge medicine,” is an alternative provider payment model gaining traction with employers who are tired of high health insurance rates and their employees not receiving the care they need. Instead of billing the insurance carrier for routine care, DPC providers usually charge a monthly flat fee which allows the member access to unlimited routine services such as laboratory services, same-day or next-day appointments, and sometimes even house calls. The savings generated by this model can certainly benefit companies, especially those that are self-funding their plans.
