Consumers unhappy with health insurance

Posted On Fri, September 9, 2011

A recent Gallup poll noted that many U.S. employees are unhappy with their current healthcare plan, and may be in the market to look for insurance quotes unattached to their place of business.

Three out of every 10 workers are unsatisfied with their health insurance plan, which is 11 percentage points higher than a poll conducted in 2008. Another 30 percent were not happy about their earnings, overall. This was three percentage points higher than the last study.

"[W]orkers tend to be more satisfied with the people they work with - namely, their coworkers and boss - and their schedule in terms of flexibility, vacation time, and amount of work required than they are with what they get in return," the Gallup release stated.

When asked how satisfied or dissatisfied a worker was about their health benefits, more than one third noted they were completely happy with their options. Nearly one quarter were somewhat satisfied, the poll added. A total of 12 percent were somewhat not happy with their options, and another 20 percent were completely unsatisfied with their health plan offering.
