Self-Funding is not a new concept. Once perceived to be most suited for large employers, self-funding is now gaining traction in the smaller employer market, fewer than 100 lives. In fact, employers with as few as 5 enrolled employees are finding self-funded plan designs a cost saving alternative. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, (PPACA), requires: costly benefit changes based on the metal tiers, Community Rating, and several new taxes and fees. Many of these costly restrictions and requirements can be avoided using self-funding.
