Today, the average annual premium for covered workers across all industries has risen to $18,142 for family coverage and $6,435 for single coverage*. The rising cost of health care has forced brokers, agents and employers to find new ways to contain costs while maintaining desirable benefits options for employees. To achieve this, many brokers, agents, and employers are turning to newer plan types, such as consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs).
