Workforce Management

Participation in employer-offered health benefits plans is contingent on an employee’s wages, according to a recent survey published by Automatic Data Processing Inc. Single-coverage-eligible employees who earn about $45,000 per year, which is about 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, were found to participate in health coverage plans 81 percent of the time, according to the study. As incomes decline from the $45,000 mark, however, participation rates begin to fall as well.
