The Expert for Medical Stop Loss Insurance Law
Employee Benefit Trusts:
Medical Stop Loss Insurance (Excess Loss Insurance) is a mainstay for the self-insured industry; without it, self-funding would not be a practical alternative for most employers sponsoring employee benefit plans. Industry participants need advice from an experienced legal professional intimately familiar with the stop loss product and the inter-relationships between the many players involved. My goal is to provide precisely that, in a way that is substantively sound, timely and fairly priced.
