A Few Healthcare Factoids

I saw these in Money magazine (Oct 2010 pg 16) and thought they were worth sharing:

  • Estimated increase in 2011 healthcare benefit costs = 8.9%
  • Employee share of premium (for a family plan) in 2010 = $3,997
  • Percentage of companies planning to increase cost sharing in the next 3-5 years = 43%
  • Average family deductible  = $1,518
  • Employers rewarding workers who fill out health risk questionaires = 63%
  • Percentage of employers penalizing employees for smoking and other health risks = 18% (29% plan to do it in the next 3-5 years)
  • Percentage of companies that offer flexible spending accounts = 85%
  • Percentage of workers that contribute to the FSAs = 22%
