A Smart Alternative. On Every Level.

Blue KC Level Funding ASO Options provide a great alternative to traditional, fully insured small group health plans. The plans have been designed to be fully funded. Blue KC will help you evaluate your maximum claims risk and then blend specific and aggregate stop-loss insurance to create level funding you can budget for each month.

The monthly level funded money remitted to Blue KC will include:

  • Administrative costs and stop-loss insurance
  • Claims funding

Your maximum annual claims, including claims run-out liability, are predetermined to create level funding that is easy to administer. Employees can elect the following coverage levels:

  • Employee Only
  • Employee and Spouse
  • Employee and Children
  • Employee and Family

Funding 101.

Your level funding will be carefully designed to ensure you neither over or under fund your plan. However, in the event your claims experience is lower than expected, you’ll get back two-thirds of your unused claims dollars. Blue KC will retain one-third as a deferred administrative fee.

Comprehensive coverage

Plans include comprehensive medical and pharmacy benefits along with Blue KC’s award-winning customer service, comprehensive disease management programs and innovative health advocacy support.
