You are the chief financial officer (CFO) of a nonprofit organization, Seamus Company, and have been asked to analyze the company’s health insurance plans for any cost-saving measures. You have also been thinking of innovative ways to help reduce cost, such as leveraging resources through healthcare partnerships. Healthcare coverage is the sole principal employee-related expenditure for most employers (aside from salaries). Employers are shifting the healthcare cost to their employees by encouraging them to think more about health-related expenses and behavior. Employers increasingly offer incentives to remove spouses from employee plans. Employers may charge workers extra if a covered spouse has access to other insurance, or they may pay bonuses when spouses are not on the company policy.
