Stop Loss Insurance

Health plan self-funding is utilized by many employers in the US as an effective approach to gain greater flexibility in benefit design and control over their health plan costs. In order to help secure financial protection against catastrophic claims, many self-funded employers purchase medical stop loss insurance.

Because stop loss insurance is custom to your medical plan, it’s important to partner with a trusted advisor to ensure you are insuring the right amount of risk. American Fidelity’s experienced stop loss team is here to help.
