When it comes to providing employee health benefits, employers are fighting an uphill battle. With traditional health insurance, employers face increased costs every year, changing regulations, and little or no control. Employers don’t know where their health care dollars are going or how to control next year’s premium increases.
For decades, large employers have benefited from strategies that give them greater control and insight. They use proven techniques that enable them to customize their benefits, lower administrative fees and taxes, and better manage the underlying health risks. Smaller and midsize employers often can’t use these strategies, however, because they don’t have the same scale and size.
The EmCap® program from Berkley Accident and Health uses the same techniques that large employers use to manage their risk and gain control over health care costs. EmCap brings together like-minded employers to create a larger pool of employees — just like a single, large employer — and with it, greater transparency and control. This opens the door to the proven strategies that can make health care costs more stable and predictable.
With EmCap, employers move from being buyers to owners of their health care. As owners, they enjoy data transparency, control over plan design, and stability and scale from participation in a Group Captive. These work together to create a true opportunity for employers to manage their health plan risk.
