A new survey from United Benefit Advisors (UBA) found that small businesses aren't far behind large employers in providing health benefits.
Even with lower employee counts, small employer health plans are providing similar levels of quality and cost control as their larger counterparts.
According to the most recent United Benefit Advisors health plan survey, 49 percent of firms with 200-plus employees providing health benefits in 2016 offered wellness programs.
A new report finds that small businesses in the US are offering health benefits that are competitive with those offered by larger employers, but that workers at the smallest companies tend to pay higher premium costs.
They are actually doing a better job of containing costs, United Benefit Advisors finds.
