Healthcare benefits influenced by CFOs, says IBI report

Posted On Tue, February 14, 2012

A report from the Integrated Benefits Institute showed that chief financial officers may have a significant impact on healthcare benefits for their companies.

Approximately 66 percent of those surveyed noted they think health is a priority at their company, according to the report. Three-quarters of those who think offering a health insurance plan is important for their financial strategy. More than eight in 10 CFOs noted they take part in their company's healthcare benefits decisions, along with other members of their company. Another 90 percent noted it was important for workers, as it helps improve their productivity.

"This research shows how CFOs crystallize the impact of health on financial performance and on productivity, and particularly focuses on the kinds of information critical to their health-investment decisions," said Dr. Thomas Parry, president of IBI.

For consumers who are not satisfied with their company's healthcare offering, or their workplace doesn't offer healthcare options at all, it could be a good plan to compare health insurance quotes. This could help get the best plan available.
