What is a self-funded employer?
In a self-funded (or self-insured) group health plan, the employer assumes the financial risk of paying for employees’ health care claims under the cost-sharing terms of the plan. Employers typically set up a trust fund to earmark corporate and employee contributions to pay incurred claims.

What does self funding mean in health care?
A Self Funded, or Self-Insured plan, is one in which the employer assumes the financial risk for providing health care benefits to its employees.
