Stop Loss Insurance Services Inc., an AmWINS Group Company, Introduces AmWINS Self-Funding Analytics

May 22, 2019

WORCESTER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

Stop Loss Insurance Services Inc., (“SLIS”), an AmWINS Group company, today announced a new service that can evaluate a benefits broker or consultant’s opportunity to transition an employer group from a fully-insured to a self-funded basis.

The new service, known as AmWINS Self-Funding Analytics, enables brokers and consultants to:

  • Evaluate a group’s risk in terms of capital, expected return, and likelihood of improving upon a fully-insured benchmark
  • Analyze and recommend the best risk structure for their clients, given a group’s risk tolerance
  • Review multiple stop loss scenarios to find the optimal outcome
  • Help a client decide whether their group should transition to self-funding or remain fully-insured

“This new analytical resource leverages data from more than 10 million lives and over $100 billion in billed charges and is calibrated and customized to each client’s situation,” said Gerald Gates, President of SLIS.

The new analytics capability adds to SLIS’ already extensive suite of products and services and is offered at no charge to evaluate alternative funding scenarios for fully-insured clients.

“This new service provides brokers and consultants with the ability to educate their clients about the rewards and risks of self-funding and the potential savings associated with that model,” said Rebecca Bocek, President-National Sales Director of SLIS.
