The Healthcare Trends Institute recently conducted a national survey regarding trends in employee healthcare benefits, including the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution health plans. Polling more than 300 human resources (HR) executives, benefit specialists, and other benefit decision-makers across the country, the survey explored the current state of employee healthcare benefits as well as how they are expected to develop in response to sweeping healthcare reform legislation.
Defined Contribution Plans
Defined contribution plans (DCPs) began as retirement accounts for retiring employees. Throughout the years, large companies began to adopt the DCP model to allow all employees to pick and choose the benefits most important to them.
The 2013 Healthcare Benefits Trends Study details the awareness and adoption of defined contribution health plans as they relate to the emergence of consumer-driven healthcare. The following Infographic visually represents some key highlights from the study regarding trends in defined contribution for 2014 and beyond. Download the complete report for free here.
