BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

With the growth of the stop loss market, captives have become a hot topic. For larger employers, single-parent captive programs provide the ability to enhance their self-funded plans. For small and mid-sized employers, group captives provide the ability to retain risk and gain control and transparency over their health care costs. As the market evolves, I see many opportunities for growth in the captive market.

I am excited to be part of the growth and expansion of MSL Captive Solutions, a specialty MGU in the captive market. I am committed to working with our business partners and maintaining a level of service they are accustomed to. Building a great team and culture will be integral to our growth and success.

Catastrophic claims continue to be a challenge for any self-funded plan, especially in the specialty prescription drug area. Implementing effective risk and cost-control measures and making sure the employer is committed to improving its overall health plan. Also, it is easy to get caught up in dropping your margins to win business. Maintaining underwriting integrity will produce better long-term results.

RE Moulton in an underwriting training program. It has been a great ride since.

Learn as much as you can about all aspects of the self-funding industry. As an underwriter, having some general knowledge of cross-functionality in other areas (claims, administration, etc.) helps to really build your skill set. As your career develops, there are many opportunities available.
