What is stop-loss?
Medical stop-loss is an insurance product that provides protection against catastrophic or unpredictable losses. It is purchased by businesses who have decided to self-fund their employee benefit health plans, but do not want to assume 100 percent of the liability for losses arising. Under a medical stop-loss policy, the insurance company becomes liable for eligible losses that exceed certain limits called deductibles. We can assist you in evaluating the stop-loss policy that meets the needs and objectives of your business.
