Employer Self-Funding Insurance on the Rise

Munich Health North America found that 82 percent of surveyed employers have had a growing interest over the last year in self-funding their group health insurance plans, according to a Healthcare Finance News report.

Thirty-two percent also said their interest has increased significantly. About 69 percent of employers plan on growing their self-funding over the next year.

This rise in self-funding interest rather than providing group health insurance could be attributed to a desire for employers to maintain flexibility and control in the financing of employee health benefits, according to the report.
