- Self-insured employers bear the burden of health care costs and the risks for their workforce.
- In most areas of the United States, self-insured employers lack the market power to negotiate hospital prices (Large Self-insured Employers Lack Power to Effectively Negotiate Hospital Prices – amjc.com).
- Self-insured employers do all that they can to protect their most important asset—their people. Employers look to offer a health care plan that allows them to provide their employees access to quality health care at an affordable cost.
