HR decision makers are constantly seeking to determine the combination of pay and benefits that maximizes value for both the employee and the employer. But with key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) soon to take effect, developing a high-value health benefits strategy is becoming an even greater challenge.

Health Care Reform May Change the Cost and Composition of the Part-Time Workforce

HR decision makers are constantly seeking to determine the combination of pay and benefits that maximizes value for both the employee and the employer. But with key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) soon to take effect, developing a high-value health benefits strategy is becoming an even greater challenge. ADP Research Institute℠, a specialized group within ADP, recently conducted its inaugural study of health benefits of companies with more than 1,000 employees. The 2012 study uses actual, aggregated and anonymous data for health and welfare benefits, including exact premium contributions, from approximately 300 U.S. based client organizations to provide actionable insights for help managing the ACA’s effect on large employers’ financial and human capital resources. The study findings also provide a potential cost benchmark for help guiding health benefits strategies moving forward.

Employer Size, Workforce Age, Industry, and State Influence Annual Health Care Premiums

Using the actual premium paid information in the ADP Research Institute study, employers can find a potential health benefits cost benchmark. The total reported health premiums in the study were approximately $9,562 per participating employee, excluding any costs associated with the funding of a health savings account (HSA) or a health reimbursement account (HRA). However, the study showed wide variations in health premiums paid by employers — by employer size, industry, workforce age, and state. These study results have direct relevance to HR leaders at most large employers, offering a potential source for objective health cost benchmarks that can help them balance plan expense and “richness” of coverage to provide maximum value for employer and employee alike.

About This Report: Conducted by ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, this study is based on 2012 actual, aggregated and anonymous employee-level data from approximately 300 ADP health and benefits clients. All states and major industries are covered, as well as employee gender, age, and marital status.

Due to the small dataset population of union employees, only non-union employees are considered in this analysis.
