SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (May 5, 2010) – The Mid Market Benefits Survey results were announced today, identifying the most relevant health care trends for 2009 and providing business owners with new insights about how to maneuver through the broken health care system in the year ahead. The survey, commissioned by Neovia Integrated Insurance Services, a health care benefits consulting firm providing comprehensive insurance services to business owners, quantifies relevant statistical data which can guide employers in making cost-effective health care decisions in 2010.
Health care is on everybody's mind. We discuss it, we worry about it and we spend a big chunk of our money on it. We hear horror stories of denied claims and astronomically rising health care costs, hoping that when we need care, it will be accessible and affordable.
Unfortunately, simply hoping for an end to the health care crisis is not enough, but businesses and consumers can take active steps to ensure that their health care needs are met. Companies who proactively seek out solutions to the rising costs of benefits will have a great advantage over competitors in the marketplace. First they have to understand how to indentify problems in order to address them.
