A recent survey from Kelton Research found that only 47 percent of consumers know exactly how much of their annual salary goes toward health insurance costs.
Only 35 percent of employees knew how much their deductible was, while slightly less knew how much they had to play for premiums of any dependents on the plan, the survey noted. Only 18 percent noted that they know how much their company puts toward their premiums each month.
More than four in five consumers think they are better prepared to pick a health insurance plan than their employers are, according to the survey, while 53 percent noted they would stay with the current plan they have if an open enrollment period appeared. Approximately one-third of those polled noted they go out of their way to review their health insurance plan annually.
Consumers may want to find out how much they pay per paycheck to their plan, as well as how much their employer spends. If the plan is not sufficient, it may be a good plan to look for other health insurance plans online.
