About Self-Insurance

Self-Insurance (also referred to as self-funding) is an alternative risk transfer strategy used by tens of thousands of employers across the country to finance their group health plans and workers' compensation programs, where expenses are paid as they are incurred as opposed to paying a fixed premium to a traditional insurance company. Captive insurance is a form of self-insurance.
