Event Details

Have you ever wondered if you can join a larger purchasing pool for health insurance to get a lower and more stable rate? This seminar will address why you might consider participating in an industry pool.  We’ll explore how the pools operate, including: 

  • Lovitt & Touché's pool for private exchange clients with EMI
  • Combining groups lowers administrative costs – translates into lower premium
  • Rates “look and feel” like a fully insured plans
  • The self-funding mechanism helps to keep costs low while helping to eliminate some of the fees and taxes required by fully insured plans
  • All groups have a voice in cost control and renewal changes through quarterly meetings
  • Groups in similar industries are combined resulting in better cost control over time
  • Ability to underwrite establishes appropriate risk tiers for each group in order to keep the group’s premium stable
