Pew releases State Employee Health Spending Report

Until now, little has been known about how states’ employee health plans and costs compare to one another and to other large, private sector employers. In a first-of-its-kind analysis, the State Health Care Spending Project has worked with global actuarial firm Milliman, Inc. to examine each state’s employee health plan spending and design characteristics, as well as how states compare to one another and to health plans offered in the private sector. The result is nationwide comparison benchmarks never before available to policymakers and other stakeholders.

Key findings from the analysis include:

  • Average per employee premiums; before and after controlling for certain cost-drivers
  • Employer and employee premium contribution arrangements
  • Plan characteristics, including cost sharing arrangements (deductibles, copays, coinsurance)
  • Major cost drivers and sources of spending variation among states, and between states and large private sector employers
  • Key policy approaches available to state policymakers to influence costs

This report is part of a series that comprehensively examines key areas of state health care spending. To learn more about Pew’s work in this area, please visit the project’s webpage
