SHRM’s 2015 Strategic Benefits Survey collected information on the costs of health care and changes in total costs over time.
This research found that three-quarters (76%) of HR professionals from organizations that provided health care coverage to their employees said they anticipated their organizations’ total health care costs would increase between plan year 2014 and plan year 2015. In plan year 2015, respondents indicated their organization was paying, on average, 76% of total employee health care costs.
For the purposes of controlling the costs of health care, about one-half of organizations reported they created an organizational culture that promotes health and wellness (53%), a statistically significant increase from 2013 (41%), and they offer consumer-directed health plans (e.g., HRAs, HSAs) (48%). About one-third offer a variety of PPO plans, including those with high and low deductibles and co-pays (35%), provide incentives or rewards related to health and wellness (33%), and provide educational initiatives related to health and wellness (32%).
