The further we venture into our modern healthcare system, it becomes more apparent that the self-insured employer understands their potential to slash healthcare costs by creating and effectively implementing custom population health management programs.

89% of employers with 1,000+ employees are self-insured
66% of employers in the 500-1,000 employee range are self-insured
30% employers with fewer than 500 employees or fewer are self-insured
