Some employees want to choose their own health plan but many don’t know how

Forty percent of employees responding to a survey said they are content to let their employer choose their health insurance plan, but 41% said they would like to choose their own plan through the open market if their employer would pay the same amount as for employer-sponsored coverage. Many survey respondents also expressed reservations about their ability to choose the best health plan on their own. Employee Benefit News (3/11)

Employees Want To Choose Their Health Insurance Company

Sixty-five percent of employees who have employer-sponsored insurance want to choose their own health insurance company. Only 22% want their employer to make that decision for them. Bruce Telkamp, CEO of HealthPocket said, “The stage is set, under Obamacare, for a decline in employer-sponsored health insurance and a rise in individually purchased coverage. Our poll reveals that, with respect to the selection of a health insurance company, personal choice is what workers want. For those workers who will migrate from employer-sponsored to individually purchased health insurance, they’ll get the control they desire.” For more information, visit
