Defined contribution health plans are a new alternative to employer-sponsored group health insurance plans. Rather than paying the costs to provide a specific group health plan benefit (a "defined benefit"), employers can fix their costs on a monthly basis by establishing a defined contribution health plan.

With a defined contribution health plan, both the business and employees save money.

  • The business gives each employee a fixed dollar amount (a "defined contribution") that the employees choose how to spend.

  • Employees purchase their own individual policy directly from a health insurance company of their choice (typically, this saves the employee 25-50%).

  • Employees use their defined contribution to reimburse themselves for their individual health insurance costs or other medical expenses such as doctor visits and prescription drugs.

  • The business fixes all costs and has complete control of the plan.

Small and medium-sized business owners, non-profits, CEOs, CFOs, HR professionals and accountants should download this buying guide to learn how to evaluate defined contribution health plan providers.

The 15-page buying guide is available for free download at the website and covers the following topics:

  • How defined contribution health plans work

  • Why and how to use Defined Contribution Software

  • How to compare features with Defined Contribution Software

  • Questions to ask when researching providers

  • Your role in administering a defined contribution health plan
