Innovations in Health Insurance

The Horton Group has collaborated with Crumdale Partners to offer a new and innovative health plan. The Horton Health Consortium is a clinically integrated, turn-key alternate funding program that provides market-leading pricing and protection through risk pooling and cost containment strategies utilizing best-in-class vendors.

Pooled loss insurance protects against catastrophic claims and enables attractive rates & stable renewals through the spreading of risk among consortium participants. In addition, Horton & Crumdale leverage their books of business to achieve favorable pricing and contractual terms & conditions across the program while implementing targeted cost containment strategies to drive further savings. The Horton Health Consortium puts employers in a position to create a strategic plan around a long-term financial strategy.

Our proprietary, clinically integrated approach outperforms the fully insured market year over year while eliminating cash flow concerns and the administrative burden typically associated with small-mid market employers (25+ Enrolled Employees).
