Report highlights problems in employer health insurance plans
Live Insurance News

A new report from Truven Healthcare, Harvard University, and the University of Michigan suggests that as health insurance costs grow, productivity amongst employees declines. This is due to a trend amongst U.S. employers who are looking to reduce the amount of money they pay in providing health insurance benefits for workers by having employees pay a larger share of monthly premiums. Many employers claim that this tactic is necessary to continue providing employees with benefits, but as prices grow, employees are becoming less productive in their jobs.
