Ullico Board of Directors Approves Changes to Leadership Read More

With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the rising cost of health care, Stop Loss insurance has become even more valuable in protecting a self-funded plan’s assets by covering costs of eligible claims in excess of the plan’s pre-determined financial tolerance (Specific and/or Aggregate Deductible). It may include coverage for the plan’s benefit offerings, including any or all of the following: Medical; Prescription Drugs; Dental; Vision; etc. Our skilled team aims to provide reliable service and excellent ongoing customer support. Funds should be able to depend on their insurance carrier and we at Ullico strive to provide that trust on every level.

It is our goal to assist our policyholders with various Cost Containment options. We have partnered with some of today’s leading professionals to assist our policyholders in managing high cost and complicated claims.

  5. I get a huge discount from my PPO network. Is that good enough a strategy to contain my plan’s costs?
    Although PPO networks will allow the plan to get health care at a reduced cost, compared to what it would have paid in the absence of a network discount through pre-negotiated rates for its members, there are various other strategies to contain the plan’s costs. Please visit our Cost Containment page for more details.
