Self Funding Health Insurance Definition

The House of Representatives provides Members and employees health care through a self-funded insurance plan provided by BCBSM Community Blue.  A self-funded plan is the preferred term for a group health plan which the employer underwrites the cost of all covered health care services.

Self-funding health insurance is one method of containing benefit costs if you have a younger and healthy group.  In contrast, insurance plans that are premium based include risks provided in area pooling versus actual utilization.  Healthcare premiums have increased on average of 10% per year over the last 5 years due to rising health care costs and the aging population of employees.
