Green Bay Press-Gazette - Insurance hikes pinch employers

Jerry Morris , assistant vice president of Aon Consulting , an employee benefits consulting group in Green Bay , blames competition among health-care providers and insurers for the leaps in premium costs the past two or three years.There are a lot of players in the market , excess capacity and people looking for market share were artificially holding costs down , he said.The players offered reduced rates to encourage companies to sign on with them , but lost money and couldn't maintain those low rates for long.The carriers have control now , Morris said.They say to the underwriters , ‘You are going to be profitable.'.Morris said he's been delivering rate hikes of 25 to 62 percent for some of his clients , with an average increase for fully-insured employers in 2002 in the upper 20 and 30 percent range.In the past we saw employers not shifting costs but absorbing the increases because of the tight labor market , he said.This year it's a different story.More employers are shifting costs either in plan design changes or employee contributions.Conor Green , an Aon consultant , said that puts employers in a bind.Employers want to provide what the other providers do , he said.
