Self-Funded Health Plans

At Custom Design Benefits, we keep businesses competitive by managing risks associated with their benefit plans and reducing their health benefits spend through self-funding. Simply put, we help our clients put their money back into their business while providing high quality, attractive benefit plans to employees. CDB offers complete administration of self-funded plans including:

  • Medical with PBM Integration
  • Dental
  • Vision

We also offer Hybrid Insurance Products (HIP)

HIPs are employer-funded accounts used to supplement the primary carrier’s plan. HIP plans pay a portion of expenses directly to the healthcare provider. Each HIP Plan is unique to the employer who offers it. HIP Plans allow employers to offer an additional benefit to employees by making their healthcare costs more manageable.
