Amtrak’s (the company) group medical plan is self-insured and pays its healthcare costs directly from the company’s operating budget. During calendar years (CY) 2011 through 2014, the company paid an estimated $1.1 billion in claims filed by medical service providers such as doctors, hospitals, and medical laboratories.
