Poll Results: Health care split

Some companies are very likely to adjust employee health care plans. Some aren’t.

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The latest HBSDealer poll question asked: “How likely is your company to adjust its employee health care plan next year?”

There was no clear leader among responses:

• 39%: Not likely;
• 38%: Very likely;
• 23%: Somewhat likely.

The survey was launched as the Society for Human Resources Management’s annual benefits survey hit the wires. In it, SHRM revealed that employer-sponsored health care rans as a major concern for both employees and employers.

The SHRM survey found that 85% of organizations prefer Preferred Provider Organization insurance plans. Meanwhile, though, interest in high deductible health plans linked with health saving accounts is rising.

The survey also found that 59% of organizations offer an HDHP plan option that’s linked with a savings/spending account while 19% offer an HDHP option that’s not linked with an account.
