SAN FRANCISCO, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Silicon Valley Employee Benefits Index (SVEBI), a resource providing market-based competitive information on employee benefits at approximately 400 San Francisco Bay Area employer groups, is now available for pre-order at www.svebi.com. The SVEBI report is scheduled for late April delivery.
The SVEBI report summarizes the most comprehensive and current research data on employee and employer benefit plan costs and contributions in the San Francisco Bay Area. New data, as of January 1, 2013, shows Bay Area PPO group premiums are actually decreasing to an average of $544 for employee-only coverage, while employee contributions for the same coverage increased by 9 percent to $109 per month. Discussion in the survey shows why this decrease is really more a result of changing plan design, rather than an actual reduction in medical plan cost.
The 2013 Report also includes key data points on monthly premiums, employee contributions and benefit detail within PPO, Kaiser, HMO, HDHP (HSA), dental, life, vision, and other employee benefit plans.
In addition, there is information on average medical, dental and vision premiums, new hire waiting periods, HIPAA/COBRA/FSA compliance status, copay and deductible trends, life and disability plan designs, and details on healthcare reform compliance.
A single edition copy of the report is $199, and volume discounts are available.
