    Expensive healthcare costs lead to riskier arrangements!

The trend, for the large employers for years, has been to opt for self-insured plans as they had enough employees to spread the risk of a potentially high-cost year due to severe illnesses or injuries. Smaller employers tend to pick fully-insured plans in which the insurer takes on the risk and pays claims as they arise throughout the year.
