Description: Developed by experts in the market space, this three-hour course instruction will ensure that students understand the key technical components of self-funding and are better prepared to counsel their clients on the various benefits of elimination of most premium tax, lowering cost of administration, claims/administration and customer service for employees.     Historically, employers have turned to the self-funding of their health plans when traditional insurance programs failed to meet their cost expectations. The many thousands of employers in the U.S. who have implemented self-insured medical programs later discovered the other advantages, such as coverage flexibility and client-specific benefit plan administration. Self-funding is one of the most effective ways employers can control the rising costs of healthcare coverage. In understanding self-funding as a concept and how it differs from fully insured products, this course will help provide in detail how it all works and proven methods for communicating this option to employers and employees in a compelling way.     The Self-Funded Certification Includes:  

  • Live three-hour training program with leading NAHU certified instructors
  • Complete student support services
  • Three hours of continuing education credits 

The cost of the Self-Funded Certification Course is $179 for NAHU members and $279 fir non-members.  Click here to register.

Instructor:  Carol Taylor, Account Executive & Compliance Officer, Kirby Employee Benefits

A special Thank You to our October sponsor:


TBAHU is extremely proud of our membership growth! We have experienced record attendance over the last several years! Because of this growth our meeting space is often filled to capacity. While this is a great problem to have, without proper advanced notice the hotel can be left scrambling for additional tables and food.  Going forward we are requesting members and guests who wish to attend our monthly meetings to register by the registration deadline listed on the invitation. Those not registered by the deadline will pay a $5 additional fee for late registration.

Please note you are not required to pay for the meeting online. Cash, checks and credit will still be accepted at the door, we only ask you to RSVP online.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you at our monthly meetings!
