Employers Expect to Make Changes to Healthcare Benefits

Mar. 5, 2015

"The majority of U.S. employers (84%) are expecting to make changes to their full-time employee health benefit programs over the next three years ... [E]mployers project health care costs to increase 4% in 2015 after plan changes, compared to the 4.5% employers predicted for 2014. Without plan changes, projections are for an increase of 5.2%. These modest increases are still more than double the current rate of inflation and are a primary factor driving employers' affordability concerns as the 2018 excise tax in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act approaches. Two in five employers that have done extensive modeling of their plans say they will trigger the excise tax in 2018. Two-thirds say the tax will have an impact on their health program strategies."
