- Health Spending Accounts
- These accounts operate in a similar manner to bank accounts and provide a simple and effective method of controlling costs while offering employees flexible coverage.
- Self Funding
- This style of funding can work in financial favour of employers most typically on Dental components of employee benefit programs.
