Small Businesses Doing More

ebso-smallbusinessAccording to Deloitte Consulting LLP, small and medium sized employers with 100 or more workers are contributing considerably more towards the cost of employee and dependent healthcare benefits than legally required – about 73% of the total cost, on average. Regional differences also exist, with companies in the Northeast contributing more toward the cost of family coverage and companies on the West coast contributing more to individual coverage.

Even as healthcare costs continue to increase, consultants agree that employers of all sizes will continue to contribute significantly to healthcare benefits as the job market continues to tighten and retaining top talent remains a top priority.
