  • 1. SHRM Survey Findings: Employee Benefits in California—Health Care April 23 2014
  • 2. • This is part three of a series of SHRM survey findings examining employee benefits in the workplace of California organizations. • The following topics are included in the six-part series titled Employee Benefits in California: » Part 1: Wellness initiatives » Part 2: Flexible work arrangements » Part 3: Health care » Part 4: Leveraging benefits to retain employees » Part 5: Leveraging benefits to recruit employees » Part 6: Communicating benefits Employee Benefits in California—Health Care ©SHRM 2014 2 Introduction
  • 3. • For the purpose of this survey, the term total health care costs includes employer-paid premiums, administration costs and any possible individual medical claims covered by the employer. Employee Benefits in California—Health Care ©SHRM 2014 3 Definition
  • 4. • How are organizations trying to control the costs of health care? The majority (79%) of organizations are “very concerned” about controlling health care costs. The top three activities organizations have engaged in to control health care costs include 1) increasing the employee share contributed to the total costs of health care (40%), 2) creating an organizational culture that promotes health and wellness (38%), and 3) providing lower-cost generic prescription or over-the-counter drugs (34%). • Can employees expect to pay a larger portion of total health care costs in the future? Looking into plan year 2014, 24% of organizations reported they plan to increase the employee share contributed to the total costs of health care, whereas 22% of organizations do not plan to increase the employee share; 54% were unsure. Focusing on the next three to five years, 21% of organizations currently paying the majority or an equal portion of health care costs believe that employees at their organizations will eventually be paying the majority of health care costs. Employee Benefits in California—Health Care ©SHRM 2014 4 Key Findings California
  • 5. • The current expectation of whether employees will take on more of their health care costs is largely unclear. Many organizations (36% in California, 40% nationally) are not sure if employees will be responsible for the majority of health care costs in the next three to five years. However, roughly one-fifth of organizations (21% in California and nationally) expect that employees will cover the majority of total health care costs in that time frame. • Organizations are using several strategies to control health care costs, and may continue to add more as organizations comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). More than two out of five organizations (44% in California, 45% nationally) increased the employee share contribution in 2013 to battle rising health care costs. Many organizations also promoted health and wellness (38% in California, 41% nationally). Organizations taking this more proactive approach to support preventive health may see positive outcomes such as fewer health care claims. As health care costs continue to increase, HR professionals will have to determine modifications to their organization’s health benefits plan, and whether these changes will have any impact on their organization’s overall total rewards strategy. For instance, will trimming or eliminating health care benefits hinder an organization’s ability to attract and retain talent? Employee Benefits in California—Health Care ©SHRM 2014 5 What do these findings mean for the HR profession?
