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

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.
