Health insurance was supposed to get better, and cheaper, right? Perhaps for some, but it looks as if employees are feeling the burden. According to Aflac's 2015 Workforces Report, companies are continuing to shift the cost of healthcare to employees:
31 percent increased employees' share of their premiums
30 percent increased copay amounts
21 percent switched to high deductible plans with HSAs
Some even dropped coverage for partners and spouses
These figures translate into more out-of-pocket costs for employees. If you're feeling the burden, it may be time to look at Aflac's plans that pay cash benefits to help you with unexpected expenses. Contact David Mark Decherd to learn more.
