May/June 2017 – Southeast Michigan Mid-Market Group Benefits Survey Results

We will share the results of our fourteenth annual Mid-Market Group Benefit Survey.  The timely analysis content includes: health plan benchmarks such as co-pays and deductibles; how Michigan employers have adapted to the requirements of Health Care Reform; insight into voluntary and work-site benefits offered by local employers; an overview of absence management practices and processes; Wellness, cost control concepts, and more.  Attendees receive a Key Indicator Report comparing their plan to industry peers as well as the entire dataset.  Our goal is to equip attendees with timely, pertinent benchmarks to use as they develop their organization’s 2017 and 2018 group benefits plan.

Health Care Reform is a moving target. MMA Michigan plans to provide a timely seminar to address the state of Health Care Reform and other “hot button” compliance issues. Stay tuned!
