Health coverage for small businesses that protect employees and the bottom line

Our Self-Funded Program is specially designed to provide affordable health benefits for small- and mid-sized businesses. Compared to traditional fully-insured plans, you get more plan options, usually at a lower cost, without sacrificing quality health coverage for your employees.

How self-funding works

With the Allstate Benefits Self-Funded Program, you have one predictable monthly payment2 that is split three ways:

  1. Claims fund - Your contribution to the claims account is determined upfront and is guaranteed not to increase for a full year as long as there are no changes to your group's benefits or enrollment.
  2. Stop-loss insurance - If your group's claims are higher than expected, stop-loss insurance protects your business's assets.
  3. Administration - All day-to-day administration of your self-funded plan - including claims processing and customer service - is taken care of for you, so you're free to focus on your business.

Your refund potential

If your group's claims are lower than expected, you may get a refund of a portion of the difference at the end of the plan year.3 About 60% of our groups receive a refund.4
