Fixed Funding: Innovative plan solutions now available for New Jersey employers

AmeriHealth New Jersey is excited and proud to announce that it is offering Fixed Funding benefit design options to New Jersey employers, powered by AmeriHealth Administrators.

These plans are available now to quote for July 1, 2022 effective dates.

Fixed Funding offers innovative benefit designs that are flexible, predictable, and cash‑flow friendly — while providing members access to high‑quality care from an extensive network of doctors and hospitals.

These benefit designs allow the benefits and flexibility of a self‑funded health plan with a predictable monthly payment.

How a Fixed Funding health plan works:

  • Employers have a consistent monthly payment that covers the cost of administrative fees, stop‑loss insurance premiums1, and an estimated cost of claims (claims fund).
  • Throughout the year, AmeriHealth Administrators pays claims out of the employer's claims fund and coordinates any needed prefunding from the stop‑loss carrier.
  • If claims are lower than expected and there is a funding balance at the end of the year, after adjusting for the premium rates at termination, 50% is credited back to the employer to be applied to the next year.
  • If the total covered claims are higher than expected, the employer’s stop‑loss policy will cover the difference.

Flexibility through versatile design choices

With Fixed Funding, employers are offered choices catered to what best suits their members. There are three different product types — EPO, POS NG, and PPO products with HSA availability — as well as 20 benefit solutions.

Our benefit design options include integrated prescription coverage, as well as two freestanding prescription coverage benefit designs that employers can pair with certain EPO and POS NG benefit designs.

Provider access is available throughout New Jersey, Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, and New York. National access is available as a buy up.
