Health Insurance

You’ll find many health insurance plans available in today’s complex market, but what’s important is to find the plan or plans that meet your company’s needs as well as those of its employees. As an independent agency, The Jones Group offers an extensive variety of group and individual health insurance plans including HMO, PPO, POS, HSA, HRA and indemnity plans. They will help you sort through the complex market and guide you to find the plan that best meets your needs.

LEVEL FUNDING 

Is a level funded plan better for you? With a fully-insured plan, all of the risk is carried by your insurance carrier. The carrier also sets the fee for coverage based on their calculations and approved rates from DOI. (Department of Insurance)

The old way for self-insured plans the risk would be fully funded by the employer or organization and is generally considered too risky for an organization with too few employees or members for obvious reasons. Beyond a certain preset amount the employer will be obligated to pay up to their stop-loss limit. Risk is best managed within large numbers of covered participants.

Level funding takes that worry away, because for the full twelve months plan year, the premium WILL NOT change. Upon renewal, in a bad health year, the premiums could rise significantly so moving back to fully insured could be an answer or not. The Jones Agency will complete that analysis well before that time comes. Innovation is the key, level funding could bring you premium stability for years to come.
