That's the smallest organization that should consider going the self-funding route," said Barry McNamara, president of Benetech Inc. of North Greenbush.
McNamara said every company will need 'specific stop-loss' reinsurance, which covers claims over a certain threshold and sets a limit for what the self-funder is liable for.
Self-funders can also pursue aggregate stop-loss reinsurance, which protects against employees' high utilization rates.This protection will reduce the risk of a quantity of significant claims.
"You might not have many claims at the attachment point of the stop-loss plan; but if you have a bunch of claims just short of that amount, you can leave your company vulnerable to very high expense," McNamara said.

"It is seen as a way to help control the cost," said Barry McNamara, spokesman for Benetech."Employers have run out of options for traditional cost-sharing and cost shifting.High-deductible plans offer a much more direct premium reduction."
McNamara said some employers can cut premiums enough to cover part of the employees' deductibles or provide a benefit--such as a dental plan--they had not previously offered and still come out ahead.
Although nearly half of the survey respondents told Benetech they expected to offer their employees a consumer-driven health plan option in the future, only 5 percent actually did as of late 2004.
The gap seems to exist primarily because local health insurers either just began offering consumer-driven plans or are still in the process of forming them.
"Development of the product locally is behind the interest," McNamara said.

"But there are fewer and fewer opportunities available for them to use the tried-and-true methods," said Barry McNamara, president of Benetech.
McNamara asked.
Cost sharing, or asking workers to pay more of their premiums, was next in popularity, at 31 percent. But here again, many employers have hit a wall.
"If I've increased employee contributions three years in a row, can I do it a fourth time in light of the economy? McNamara said.
"Eligibility is becoming more and more of a front-burner issue," McNamara said.
