The release states that the insurer hopes to use this partnership to fuel SkyVantage, the newest technology-driven stop-loss solution for its Accident and Health (A&H) division.

An increasing number of firms are switching to self-funded health insurance arrangements as a result of rising employer healthcare expenditures. However, Skyward Specialty noted that many businesses are unable to obtain stop-loss insurance due to a lack of access to significant historical data.

In addition, they are unable to access necessary protection to self-fund employee benefits and take advantage of the value-added quality and cost-containment solutions afforded to self-funded employers.

These employers are relegated to the fully insured market to provide health benefits, resulting in double-digit annual increases and plan designs that leave employees functionally uninsured, the firm noted.

SkyVantage was created to help overcome this challenge, leveraging Gradient AI’s SAIL medical underwriting solution to its full potential.
