Health plan strategies, philosophy, management and consumer-driven health plans will be an important focus for employers in the upcoming months as the debate on health care continues in Washington.
Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) March 3, 2010
United Benefit Advisors, LLC (UBA), (http://www.UBAbenefits.com ), one of the nation’s leading employee benefits advisory organizations, is notifying all employers of the final opportunity to participate in the 2010 UBA Employer Opinion Survey, which will include a special supplement on Health Care Reform. The survey will close at the end of the business day (PST) on March 5, 2010.
Employers who participate in this years’ survey will receive a complimentary copy of the results from both the 2010 UBA Employer Opinion Survey and the Health Care Reform special supplement. “As with past UBA surveys, employers are certain to find interesting perspectives about what will happen to health care costs in the next five years, how coverage/contribution mandates may impact retirement programs and what adjustments employers may be making to their plans if a required minimum employer contribution is implemented,” said William Stafford, Vice President, Member Services for UBA.
The survey also provides employers with critical benchmarks that allow them to compare their attitudes and strategies regarding employer-provided health care with those of their peers and competitors. “Health plan strategies, philosophy, management and consumer-driven health plans will be an important focus for employers in the upcoming months as the debate on health care continues in Washington. Employers will learn which strategies are actually being implemented (rather than just talked about) and which ones are really working,” said Stafford.
