Health and Voluntary Workplace Benefits Survey

The 2014 Health and Voluntary Workplace Benefits Survey (WBS), as well as the 2013 WBS and 1998-2012 Health Confidence Survey, have tracked a broad spectrum of health care and voluntary benefit issues, including satisfaction with health care, their confidence in the health care system of today, the future of the health care system and the Medicare program, and their attitudes toward health care reform. The survey aims to be timely and comprehensive. The survey has addressed such topics as health care quality, employment-based health benefits and the cost of coverage, choice of health plan, managed care, the uninsured, Medicare, long-term care, prescription drugs, retiree health benefits, the value of benefits, and voluntary benefits. The Health and Voluntary Workplace Benefits Survey is sponsored by EBRI and Greenwald & Associates, Inc., a Washington, DC-based market research firm. The 2014 survey was conducted online in June 2014, using the Research Now consumer panel. A total of 1,517 workers in the United States ages 21-64 participated in the survey. The 2014 survey was funded by grants from the following organizations: AARP, Cigna, Fidelity, Guardian Life, Lincoln Financial Group, Mercer, MetLife, The Segal Company, T. Rowe Price, Unum, and Walgreens.
