"With over 12,000 health plans
included in last year's report, the UBA Health Plan Survey is
unprecedented in terms of the number of companies participating,"
said Nancy Schaub, director of agency services. "Other surveys have
often delivered data of limited use to employers due to
traditionally small sample sizes, ranging from a few hundred to less

with truly actionable benchmarks, we are using our national scope to

The annual UBA surveys provide the nation's employers with a
single source to address their most critical benefits benchmarking
needs. The resulting savings in employer time from participating in
a single set of surveys, as well as the improved benchmark data and
drill-down capability inherent in a much larger database, will allow
employers to significantly improve their strategic intelligence in
this critical area of their business.
