New health care mandates and rising premiums pose a significant challenge to employers striving to provide health care coverage at a reasonable cost. In an effort to find innovative ways to reduce costs while maintaining benefits, many companies are reevaluating current program offerings. Health care reform provides an opportunity to consider new self-funding options as an alternative to traditional fully insured benefit programs.
Our in-depth knowledge of health insurance, funding alternatives and carrier relationships brings a new level of sophistication to health care benefit solutions. As an independent advisor, IUP offers the flexibility, objectivity and creativity to maximize each opportunity while remaining vendor-neutral.
