Why Novo Connection?

Health insurance in the United States has become unaffordable and confusing for most consumers and business owners. Self-funded insurance allows businesses a way to control the rising trends of traditional, fully insured health models. Unfortunately, the current fragmented self-funded market makes it confusing and nearly impossible for employers and brokers to build effective self-funded programs that deliver true validated savings and results. 

 

The current marketplace for unbundled self-funded solutions manifests a multitude of problems and challenges for brokers and their clients, including: 

 

  • Complexity of self-funding which is difficult for brokers and their customers to navigate 

  • Too many unvetted, ineffective solutions which are difficult to confirm from an efficacy and cost savings standpoint 

  • A lack of understanding how to implement and promote usage of custom health plans 

  • A lack of transparency and misaligned financial incentives 

Additionally, successful self-funded programs require sufficient stop loss insurance to offset risk. The stop loss insurance market has its own unique set of problems and challenges, including the following: 

 

  • Data needed for the underwriting process is not provided on time; if at all

  • Limited data is available to stop loss insurance carriers needed to ease proper risk assessment and thereby produce the most competitive price quotes possible 

  • Wasted time for back in forth communication between brokers and carriers

  • Inflated quotes from insurance carriers due to lack of competition

  • High-level of lasers. 

  • Leaving employers vulnerable because of a lack of compliance with transparency laws industry wide
