Self Insurance

To self insure is to take responsibility for all risk without an assistance from an insurance company.

Some corporations with large amounts of cash on their balance sheet find it more economical to pay the health expenses for their employees from corporate funds, instead of buying group insurance.

Another option is to self insure for the smaller expenses and buy insurance with a very high deductible to cover only catastrophic costs.
