The Rising Cost of Healthcare

The following national surveys of employer-sponsored health plans found that the average healthcare cost per employee for large companies was $11,032 in 2015, and employees’ out-of-pocket cost was $2,208 in 2015.  It was anticipated that health plan costs would rise by 4.6 to 6.5% in 2016.  The sources for this information are included in surveys by:

– AON Hewitt
– Kaiser Foundation
– Mercer
– Price Waterhouse Cooper
– Segal Group
– MetLife

These surveys also mention cost-shifting initiatives, which do not reduce cost, they only shift cost.  If you truly want to control your medical plan cost, there is a better alternative.  For more information on how we can help YOU save money, contact Benefits Planning Service today at (949) 833-8187 or (800) 916-2012.
