Health Care Risk Financing Certificate Program - Classroom Program


The in-person version of the Risk Financing Certificate Program features two full days of education on financing concepts and techniques

Understanding the basics of risk financing allows the risk manager to tie clinical efforts directly to the financial ramifications. This Boot Camp will help risk managers learn key risk financing information and techniques, as well as how to better assess their own programs. From reviewing loss runs to understanding actuarial reports, an educated risk manager can engage their c/suite by talking about the financial implications of the risk management program to the organization.

We will start by looking at insurance policies and end by ‘running’ a captive – illustrating how the options of risk financing parallel the organization’s philosophy on risk identification, mitigation and resolution. Each participant will leave with practical tools to use in their daily work.

Subject areas include: 

  • Risk Financing Program Philosophy
  • Feasibility Study, Coverages and Captives
  • Incorporating the Actuarial
  • Policy and Indemnification Language
  • Case Reserving, Modification Factors
  • Ultimate Losses
  • Captive Governance
