04 - What's All the Buzz about Level-Funded Premium?
This will cover the specifics of level-funded premium, how it works, how to communicate the specifics to employers, advantages and disadvantages, appropriate employer sizes, with contrast drawn against contingent premium and its advantages and disadvantages. The program will include discussions of alternative programs in level funding (e.g., pharmacy-only programs) as well as other developments (e.g., regulatory changes, trends in healthcare provider billing) impacting the program. The focus of the presentation will include perspectives from the employer, stop-loss insurer (including reinsurers) and service providers involved in the program (e.g., retail brokers, third party administrators, pharmacy benefit managers, auditors, etc.). This session will include both panel and audience interaction throughout.
