Evolution Healthcare Understands Brokers

In a recent survey, the broker community revealed their primary reason for pursuing self-funded healthcare products for their clients in 2021. The results are in and Evolution Healthcare hears you loud and clear!

The latest Healthcare Turnkey Solutions Broker Survey results point to increased opportunities in the self-funded market heading into 2021. According to the survey, 94% of brokers have clients asking for information about self-funded plans (if you’re part of the 6% of brokers yet to explore self-funding options for your clients, what are you waiting for?).

Brokers pursuing self-funded and alternatively funded options (like referenced-based pricing and captives) say the main reason for entering the self-funded market was for market growth opportunities. 1 in 2 brokers surveyed indicated that gaining insight into self-funded products was a top priority for employers today.

RGA’s survey reflects input from some of the largest brokerage firms in the industry. Here’s what they had to say about the future of self-funding:

  • 100% of brokers site “market growth opportunities” as their primary reason to enter the self-funded market
  • Brokers reported the overall strength of the provider network is the primary success factor
  • 1 in 3 brokers are looking for a complete suite of outsourced products and services ranging from quoting and proposals to administration.
