posted by TrueNorth Companies on Friday, April 17, 2020

We live in an era where organizations of all shapes and sizes are expected to do more with less. Today's business owners and decision makers face the daunting task of balancing financial goals and aspirations against the cost of supporting a healthy and productive workforce.

The TrueNorth University series of educational webinars was developed to empower HR professionals to be more knowledgeable within their teams. This month's session focuses on self-funding. On a self-insured plan, employers assume the financial risk for providing health care benefits to its employees.

Employers choose self-funded plans for multiple reasons including:

  • Cost savings from benefit design changes
  • Increased flexibility and control of your plan
  • Enhanced cash flow
  • Cost savings from reduced premiums
