Welcome to Passion for Subro & Self Funding!

The purpose of this site is to share my passion for subrogation and the self insurance industry with all of you.  My goal is that this site will become your number one destination for health insurance information.
Whether you are looking for the latest on health care reform, the most recent subrogation and reimbursement case, or want to be a self funding guru this is the place for you.  While I hope that this site serves as a great educational resource for all of you, I also hope to keep you entertained with the funny, confusing and just plain weird world of subrogation and self funding.
I would love your feedback and any newsworthy items you may have to make this site even better.
