The self-funded plan refers to a health care insurance program in which larger companies pay the health care costs for their employees rather than insuring them. Through this process, the company is acting as its own insurance company.

To avoid the possibility of very high, unexpected expenses, companies sometimes take out an additional insurance, such as an excess coverage plan.
