A December 2011 study published by HealthLeaders InterStudy Group on the Texas health insurance market is an interesting read. For example, Blue Cross, United HealthCare, Cigna and Aetna (BUCA) show that more than half of their Texas large group enrollment are on self-funded plans versus fully-insured plans.
According to this report, 55% of Blue Cross’s large group enrollment is self-funded while Cigna’s and Aetna’s are in excess of 80% followed closely by United HealthCare at 75%.
Editor’s Note: With ACA taking full effect in 2014 we expect more employers will self-fund and these numbers will increase. For a copy of the report, write RiskManager@RiskManagers.us
