Healthcare: Plan Participants Struggle with Cost Increases

Healthcare: Plan Participants Struggle with Cost Increases. Rising healthcare costs are placing an additional burden on the shoulders of employees.   It is commonplace for a company’s employees to pay a significant portion of the cost associated with healthcare, healthcare insurance, and increased healthcare deductibles.

When healthcare costs increase at a pace where the expense cannot be offset by an employee’s compensation, the money for healthcare must come from another source.  In many cases, these healthcare-related expenses are paid with dollars that are being “diverted” from participant contributions to their-own self-funded retirement plan.
