A Deductible Reimbursement Policy Has Financial Benefits

Martin Eveleigh
August 09, 2017

A new Captive Thought Leader Video from Atlas Insurance Management titled "What Are the Financial Benefits of a Deductible Reimbursement Policy?" has recently been added to the library.

The video features Martin Eveleigh, chairman of Atlas Insurance Management, who reveals that an operating company may achieve immediate financial benefits by using a captive insurer to issue a deductible reimbursement policy for its high deductible retentions. While a high deductible may lower overall insurance premiums, the increase to a company's bottom line faces tax consequences. By paying the full premium amount to a captive insurance company, an immediate tax deduction may be achieved for the premiums paid to the captive. 

This section of the site currently features 52 short educational videos by 11 captive insurance experts. Among the topics covered in the 1–3-minute videos are micro-captives, tax issues, captive feasibility, captive domicile selection, choosing an auditor, captive management, group captives, healthcare captives, risk pooling, and benefits in captives.

Along with Mr. Eveleigh, the captive insurance experts featured in the videos include the following.

  • John Alberici, chairman, Alberici Corporation

  • Gary Bowers, tax partner, Johnson Lambert

  • Alan Fleming, chairman, Airmic

  • Debbie Liebeskind, actuary, health & group benefits, Towers Watson

  • Michael Maglaras, principal, Michael Maglaras & Company

  • Steven McElhiney, president & CEO, EWI Re, Inc.

  • Michael O'Neill, president & CEO, American Contractors Insurance Group

  • Hugh Rosenbaum, retired principal, Towers Watson

  • P. Bruce Wright, partner, Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP

  • Brady Young, president & CEO, Strategic Risk Solutions

Each of these captive insurance thought leaders has decades of broad experience with captive insurance companies, and they freely share their expertise in the videos. This constitutes a wealth of information on captive insurance fundamentals that will be especially valuable to newcomers to captive insurance. By watching one or two of these informative videos each day for a month, you will hone your knowledge of captive insurance fundamentals and trends.

There is no cost to view the videos, and you will find them in the Captive Thought Leader Videos section of More videos will be added in the future.
