Course Overview

This course, written and presented by Mark Bellman, has a “Star Wars” theme. The focus is on the massive number of small employers switching from fully-insured to self-funded coverage, primarily in an effort to avoid the ACA’s modified adjusted community rating rules. By self-insuring, young and healthy small groups can continue to be rewarded for their lower claims risk. However, this strategy isn’t right for every group and does come with some additional reporting requirements. In this course, we discuss the pros and cons and share some tips to help brokers determine when ASO is a good fit for their clients and when it is not.
