Cost of Providing Medical Insurance

It’s no secret that the cost of health care is on the rise—we hear about it regularly in the news
and see it on our paychecks. But just how much did the cost of health care increase in 2019?

For companies using PlanSource as their benefits technology platform, premiums rose 7% this year, which is slightly higher than the latest Kaiser Family Foundation report that indicates a 5% increase in premiums.

HDHP and HSA Trends

Peanut butter and jelly. Peas and carrots. HDHPs and HSAs? Our 2019 data indicates a slight increase in the percentage of employers that offer an HDHP and that most employers with a high deductible plan option also offer an HSA.

Benefits Benchmark Webinar

Benefits are incredibly complex. And in an industry crowded with so many different stakeholders and many differing opinions, it can be difficult for employers to clarify the best benefits strategy for their organization. One of the best tools to make sense of it all is cold, hard data. Data is powerful. When you know what the average employer’s benefits program looks like and how much they’re paying, you can make a real comparison of how your organization measures up and have something to base your strategy on.
