In the wake of news around increases in household incomes (5.2%) and the slow growth of employer healthcare premiums, Leah Binder writes for Forbes about how more employers are looking for ways to support and streamline healthcare costs.
High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs) are listed as the most “dramatic” of strategies placing a “significant burden” on employees. With this shift comes more attention placed on employees as consumers. As they will need to pay more towards their own bills, many will move towards Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) as a solution.
Employees are facing a significant burden due to cost shifting, which places the responsibility of paying for healthcare on them. Nonstop Wellness offers a $0 deductible, copay, and coinsurance plan that lifts this burdern (along with a baseline 12.5% organizational savings).
