On Nov. 15 CAI opened up our 6th annual N.C. Healthcare Benefits and Cost Survey. Designed with our employee benefits partner, Hill, Chesson and Woody, this survey provides employers with the information that is critical to managing their employee benefits plan, allowing for a comparison of plan designs, premiums and cost-sharing arrangements with that of other N.C. companies.
The geographic focus is one of the things that makes this survey exceptional. It has more N.C.-based data than any other employer survey out there. The 2009/2010 survey included data from 516 N.C. employers, and we anticipate that the 2010/2011 version will include more than 600 participants.
If you make decisions or are charged with gathering information about employee benefits for your organization, I highly encourage you to participate in this survey. All survey participants will receive a free electronic report (early March 2011) and an invitation to an in-depth debriefing of the results. The report and debriefing will help you and your organization:
- Compare and benchmark your benefits plan with other N.C. employers with similar numbers of employees and/or by industry
- Get access to the data you need to develop an effective employee benefits strategy
- Learn how other employers are reacting to healthcare reform
- Stay competitive in the labor market
Both traditional and consumer-driven health plans are covered in the survey. Data is further filtered by number of eligible employees, industry and funding arrangement. In addition to the yearly numbers, the survey addresses longer term trends and competitive practices within the market.
