C-Suite Survey on Health Plan Broker Relationships & Cost-Containment Strategies

The Results are In

Conducted by Imagine360 in collaboration with BenefitsPRO, a survey of executives generated interesting feedback on their relationships with health plan brokers and the cost-containment strategies they bring to the table.

The good news? The survey shows a consensus that most brokers have established solid connections with executives in the C-suite. But it’s not all roses.

In this overview, we’re sharing the top highlights of the survey results for brokers who are ready to strengthen their ties with the business leaders who rely on them.

About the Survey & Key Findings

We surveyed approximately 100 executives. Among the respondents, 73% were finance executives and 27% held other C-suite positions. More than half of the responses (57.5%) came from executives with employee populations under 2,000. Topics explored in our survey included broker satisfaction, communication frequency and cost-containment effectiveness.

31% of executives surveyed believe their healthcare brokers are primarily concerned with their company’s best interests.

Among the executives who indicated they would not recommend their brokers (or were neutral about doing so), 50% said they met just annually or rarely/never.

Key Survey Findings: Plan Feedback & Potential Risks

Respondents were mixed about the value of their plan compared to its cost, with 47.5% reporting it was too expensive and 51.5% saying it was fairly priced.
