4 A Medical Center’s Overall Financial Objectives

5 A Captive’s Place in a Medical Center’s Overall Financial Objectives Captives offer an opportunity to: Reduce operating costs through lower insurance expenses Increase cash reserves vs. insurance premiums Increase alignment between physicians and hospitals in defending claims Align community physicians with the hospital Potential for creative financing of assets Each Captive must be structured for the organization /organizations it serves

6 Example of a Typical Captive Approach Stanford Hospital Stanford Clinics Children’s Hospital Children’s Clinics SHC/LPCH Insurance Company School of Medicine Shared Service Risk Management Department (Expenses Shared by SHC & LPCH)

7 Risk Management & Financial Strategy Cash reserves in the captive can become a significant asset Investment policy can affect earnings and premiums Investment policy can also allow for hospitals to potentially invest in nontraditional investment vehicles Expansion of risk management services beyond the hospital can become a source of revenue and investment capital.

8 Captive Program Design to Achieve Financial Strategy The captive may be treated on the hospital books as a consolidated or equity method of accounting Captives need to be aligned with the goals of the organization they represent Governance needs to be representative of the funding of the reserves Charters need to be specific as to the goals to be achieved
