A New Frontier in Self-Funded Group Captives

The most unique, cost effective Captive solution for you. Blue Ridge Captive Solutions (BRCS) is a captive program underwritten by East Coast Underwriters, LLC. BRCS enables groups of all sizes to pool their risk, providing a more controlled, predictable, and stabilized environment for your self-funded plan.

The Blue Ridge Difference

not all captives are created equal

Most captive programs today have confusing rules for membership, convoluted reinsurance fee structures, and expensive capital requirements beyond their normal self-funded plan costs. Blue Ridge Captive Solutions offers a straightforward alternative that provides long term cost control through industry best practices and reliable stop-loss.

Pooled risk creates economies of scale, even if your individual plan runs unfavorably.

Self-Funded plans offer more flexibility and are backed by Federal law.

Stop-loss insurance allows each employer to comfortably assess their own level of risk.
