We are pleased to present the results of the 2012 UBA Health Plan Survey. The report is based upon the responses of 11,711 employers and 17,905 health plans. The purpose of the survey is to provide employers with comparative data regarding plan costs, employee contributions and plan designs that will allow them to benchmark their plan against those of similar employers. That evaluation can be based on employers with similar numbers of employees, employers in a similar industry or employers in a similar geographic area. The survey focuses solely on active employee and retiree health plans and directly related benefits (prescription drugs, HRA/HSA and Section 125 plans) in order to derive the most useful results possible. A significant strength of this study is its unique ability to support subgroup analyses.
The national scope of the survey allows for regional, industry-specific and employee size differentials to emerge from the data. In addition, the exceptionally large number of included plans allows for both a broader range of categories than normally reported and a larger number of respondents in each category. This is especially true for the small and midsize companies that comprise the overwhelming majority of health plans in the country.
