Self-Funded Insurance Plans

What Makes THT Different?

With the exponential increase in healthcare costs, more employers each year are looking to self-fund their employee healthcare benefits. Fully insured carriers, driven by profit motives, frequently establish premium rates that comply with state and federal minimums while aiming to maximize their profits. In contrast, self-funded plans involve actuaries setting group rates, where the employees and their employer pay only for the healthcare services utilized.

Since CCSD licensed employee benefits are administered by THT, a self-funded non-profit, a greater share of the money goes towards healthcare, as opposed to administrative costs and profits. This results in copays and deductibles that are often lower than fully insured plans. Plus, any money left over at the end of the year is used to offset the next year’s expenses.
