Cdph poll final

  1. 1. SHRM Poll: The State of Consumer-Directed Health Plans in the Workplace<br />Sponsored by AETNA June 29, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Key Findings<br /><ul><li>How do organizations decide which health care benefits to offer? The most important (“somewhat important” or “very important”) considerations in selecting health care benefits were: 1) adopting new options that help contain costs for the organization (99%),2) offering a health care benefits plan that provides a broad network of participating physicians and hospitals (98%), 3) adopting new options that help contain costs for employees (98%), and 4) providing 100% coverage for preventive care, including annual physicals and health screenings (95%).
  3. 3. Over the past three to five years, which cost-cutting measures have organizations implemented in relation to health care benefits? As the costs of health care continue to spiral upward, employees and employers are searching for ways to keep these costs under control and as manageable as possible. The top reported cost-cutting measures related to health care benefits was asking employees to share more of the cost of health care benefits (77%). This was followed by switching insurance carriers to find the most competitive rates (47%) and offering consumer-directed health plans (CDHPs) (41%).
  4. 4. Are companies leveraging consumer-directed health plans (CDHPs)? Yes; 42% of organizations offered a CDHP option for employees. Large-staff-sized organizations, publicly owned for-profit companies and firms with multinational operations locations were more likely to offer this plan. Among organizations that offered a CDHP,75% offered health savings accounts (HSAs) and 47% provided health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs).*
  5. 5. How comfortable are HR professionals with their level of knowledge about CDHPs? In general, HR professionals were not entirely comfortable with their present level of knowledge about CDHPs: only 42% responded either “agree” or “strongly agree” when asked if they were comfortable with their level of knowledge. However, HR professionals from organizations that offered a CDHP were significantly more likely to agree (“agree” or “strongly agree”) they were comfortable with their knowledge level (55%) compared with organizations without this plan in place (34%).</li></ul>2<br />*According to SHRM’s 2011 Employee Benefits Research Report, 35% of companies provided health savings accounts (HSAs) and 21% offered health reimbursement arrangements. The State of Consumer-Directed Health Plans in the Workplace poll specifically examined the relationship between HSAs and HRAs among organizations offering CDHPs.<br />
  6. 6. Key Findings<br /><ul><li>Do CDHPs help engage employees in their own health and wellness? Among respondents that offered a CDHP, 77% responded either “strongly agree” or “agree” that doing so has helped engage employees in their own health and wellness.
  7. 7. What are the barriers preventing organizations from offering CDHPs? Among companies without a CDHP, the primary reasons for not offering the option were: 1) management wants to maintain the status quo since most employees are satisfied with the current health care benefits plan (49%), 2) management believes CDHPs will not save enough money to merit offering this type of plan (27%), and 3) not have enough information about the benefits of CDHPs (26%).</li></ul>3<br />
