The 2014 UBA Benefit Opinions Survey provides employers who participate with critical data that allow them to compare their attitudes and strategies regarding employer-provided health care with those of their peers and competitors. This survey will reveal which strategies are actually being implemented (rather than just talked about) and which ones are really working.

The survey delineates employers' opinions in five key areas: Health Plan Strategy, Benefits Philosophy and Opinion, Health Plan Management, Personal Health Management, and Employee Communications. The survey compiles information from employers representing all major industry classifications, employee size categories, and regions of the country.

UBA Partner Firms will be presenting the results of the 2014 UBA Employer Benefit Opinions Survey in May 2014. Contact your local UBA Partner Firm for more information.
