Consumer Driven Health Plans Surpass HMOs in Popularity with Employees
Date:8/18/2009

enrolled employees (63.9%)
  • Fee For Service Plans are all but extinct, with only 0.4% of employees enrolled
  • The average employee contribution for plans with contributions for all plan types is $105 for single and $419 for family
  • More than three-fourths of all wellness plans (78.4%) offered a health risk assessment
  • More than two-thirds (67.2%) of all family plans without a deductible are located in the Northeast and West
  • Of all plans in the Northeast, 86.6% have 100% coinsurance
  • 52.7% of all covered employees also elected to cover their dependents
  • As health care plan offerings become more complex, Stafford points out that benchmarking data like the annual UBA Health Plan Survey has become increasingly critical.

    "The intent of the survey is to provide employers of all sizes with the data they need to manage their health care benefit programs effectively," said Stafford. "Especially for the more than 99% of U. S. employers with fewer than 1,000 employees who have operations in multiple locations, this survey is the best source of reliable regional - and in many cases state - health plan benchmarks by employer size and industry categories."

    The 2009 UBA Health Plan Survey will be available to the public after Nov. 1. Only UBA Member Firms have access to the more granular state, region, and industry data. Stafford also said the analysis of the 2009 UBA Health Plan Survey data will continue over the next several months, and additional findings will be forthcoming. UBA has Member Firms in virtually every major U.S. market. To locate one and learn more about the 2009 UBA Health Plan Survey, visit '/>"/>
