    of millennial employees want more flexibility in their health benefit plan and the ability to choose what s covered and how much is covered compared with 66 of baby boomers The report also surveyed attitudes regarding post retirement benefits Nearly half 48 of benefit plan members expect to have access to their current benefit plan after retirement However only 23 of employers currently offer some kind of coverage or access to coverage after retirement Members realize they will need a financial plan in retirement and they know they can t rely too much on the government said Connie Wong director of pharmacy benefits with Manulife Financial at the event As a result she explained plan members worry about their finances which can cause them to be distracted at work Health Risk Screening Another area of disconnect between plan sponsors and members is health screening Most employees say they would participate in health risk screenings if their health benefit plan offered them Specifically 91 would get tested for cancer 89 for heart disease 84 for diabetes and 75 for stress or mental health However only 35 of surveyed employers are likely to offer screening for mental health 34 for heart disease 34 for diabetes and just 24 for cancer Wellness is no longer a risky initiative in terms of return on investment said Wong adding that the likely reasons why most employers are not investing in on site health screenings include cost and the logistics of organizing them And while employees clearly expect more from their benefits they will likely not have their desires fulfilled soon according to Bonnett Most employers are not in any hurry to make fundamental plan design changes in the future he said Another area the survey touched upon is the relationship between plan sponsors and providers It found that sponsors particularly look to insurance companies for help On a scale of one to 10 plan sponsors rank insurers highest at 7 6 in terms of expected level of support for wellness programs in the workplace compared with 6 8 for healthcare providers and 6 2 for government the report notes And 79 of employers believe their insurance carriers should play a bigger role in helping them keep their workplaces healthy Since most carriers are already active often through health education materials and online tools for plan members the results suggest that plan sponsors may not be aware of their providers offerings or they re looking for something different according to the report The survey polled 1 502 health benefit plan members as well as 500 benefit plan sponsors Source Benefits Canada Employers and Employees Not on the Same Benefits Page June 3 2014 Make Sure You Are On the Same Benefits Page Contact a Benefits Alliance Advisor for help with your Group Benefits and or Retirement Plans About The Benefits Alliance Group The Benefits Alliance Group is Canada s largest firm of independent group benefits advisors We provide superior advice on the design and management of
