Healthcare Trends Institute Publishes Consumer Survey Results

FARGO, N.D.--()--Healthcare Trends Institute announces the results of a recent consumer survey, now available for download. This survey was conducted during a time when consumers are increasingly responsible for their healthcare benefits, yet most still don’t understand the options available.

“Employees need to be able to make the right decision for themselves, their family, and their future.”

The free eBook, entitled What Employees Want You to Know About Healthcare Benefits, provides the results and insights on employee frustrations, health plan familiarity, communication preferences, retirement preparedness and more. The results encourage new and innovative ways employers can give employees what they want in regards to their healthcare benefits.

The research was sponsored by the Healthcare Trends Institute, an educational platform for employers, consumers, and other healthcare benefits stakeholders, and was conducted to help employers identify engagement strategies and guide best approaches in delivering healthcare benefits. The survey polled employed adults, both male and female, ages 18+ across all regions of the United States.

“It is crucial that employers educate and communicate with their employees about their healthcare benefit options,” said Tiffany Wirth, Executive Director of the Healthcare Trends Institute. “Employees need to be able to make the right decision for themselves, their family, and their future.”
