- Medical Plan Cost Increases
- Monthly Premiums (Single/Family)
- Monthly Employee Contributions (%) (Single/Family)

Is other more detailed information available? 
Yes!  Due to printing and timing limitations during the data collection process, we are unable to distribute all of these initially so we have selected the most frequently requested items for the Individual Custom Report.  Additional information is available and may be requested based on your specific needs.  

Will my information remain private?  
We take your privacy very seriously and take every precaution to ensure your trust is not violated.  Your information is confidential, and we do not share your specific results with anyone but you.  All information is aggregated and de-identified when shared publicly.  Additionally, all information sent through the Internet is secured though password protection and firewall security.  

Is the survey easy to complete? 
Yes!  We hired one of the world’s largest independent actuarial consulting firms with national experience in this area to produce a survey that is quick and easy to navigate.  You can complete the survey online in an average of about 30 – 60 minutes. 

Before you begin, you will need the following information available on hand:
- Plan designs for all health and welfare plans (typically found in your Summary Plan Description)
- Total monthly premiums (or budgeted rates), employee contributions (monthly dollar amounts) and enrollment for your plans
- Vacation, wellness, third party disease management, voluntary benefits, leaves of absence and other miscellaneous benefits you offer 

Additionally, if you need to take a break, the survey allows you to save your results and come back to them later.  This feature is useful if you have to stop before you answer all of the questions or if you want to return to the survey to change an answer you previously entered.
