This lab has been changed to virtual only. We will be meeting over zoom and there will be no in person option. 

Captive insurance companies have become a mainstream risk management tool to reduce healthcare costs and control volatility. Stacey and Alan will review the mechanics of captive programs, discuss advantages to employers and employees, and provide practical examples of savings, stability, and opportunities for improved patient care. This session will provide you with insights to partner with your consultant and identify opportunities to expand on cost containment strategies for your group benefits plan.

At this lab, Alan and Stacey will:

  • Review challenges of healthcare cost, volatility, and outcomes
  • Provide an overview of group benefit captives
  • Discuss why interest is increasing
  • Review general mechanics
