Self-Funded Health Insurance Now an Option for More Businesses

Times are changing. With technology advances, and Roundstone’s captive funding model, self-funding is now a solid option for smaller businesses – one where you keep what you don’t spend on claims and the captive distributes unused premium back to you each year. A win-win.


Self-funded health insurance with a group medical captive offers more savings, flexibility, and control than a fully-insured plan. We like to think of it as a long-term business strategy, not a frustrating renewal experience every 12-months. And when you choose this route with Roundstone, instead of a black box, you’ll benefit from personalized service, a great benefits package for your employees, transparency from dollar one, and considerable savings and control. 


It’s the better way to purchase health insurance.

What Is Self-Funded Insurance?

Self-funded insurance means the employer pays the healthcare claims of employees through a third-party administrator (TPA) and buys stop-loss insurance for coverage of high-cost claims. 


Instead of paying a fixed premium to an insurance company, companies pay claims as they come. For small and midsize companies, however, self-funded insurance wasn’t always practical. But by pooling many employers together in the Roundstone captive, they can now enjoy the benefits of self-funded health insurance.

Self-Funded Insurance for Small and Mid-Size Businesses


Making the Decision to Self-Fund

Small and mid-size businesses are being hit hard by rising health insurance costs. The status quo is simply not sustainable. 


For business owners today, it is time to apply an innovative mindset to your healthcare expense. Look and see how you and your employees would benefit from a new approach. What’s the long-term cost of the same-old, same-old?

Regulated by the ERISA

When businesses choose to fund their own insurance plans, they are not subject to state insurance laws and oversight. Instead, they’re regulated at the federal level under ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act) and various provisions in other federal laws like HIPAA and the ACA.


Self-Funding Doesn't Have to Mean You're on Your Own

Employers can employ protective measures such as stop-loss or reinsurance, which minimizes the risk of high aggregate and individual claims. But going it alone, means you are on your own island.


Being self-funded as part of the captive is a game changer. The captive pool  protects you from volatility. 

We Are Better Together

Roundstone’s group medical captive is designed and optimized to be the most effective way for a business with 25-1000 employees to enjoy self-funded insurance.
