We conducted a study for Alegeus, the leading provider of SaaS-based benefit funding and payment solutions, from October 14-16, 2022 with 1,175 U.S. respondents. The results we found showed that respondents were turning towards employer-sponsored benefits choices, especially their personal strategies around consumer-driven health (CDH) accounts like health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible spending accounts (FSAs). This shift in focus is reflected by the fact that; of the 25% of respondents who have a CDH account, nearly half (47%) say that economic uncertainty has impacted how much they plan to put in their account. In contrast, COVID-19 has had far less impact on CDH account contributions, as 74 percent say they have maintained the same investment choices since prior to the pandemic. Luckily employers seem to be doing well in addressing these concerns, as 65% of the respondents who receive their healthcare benefits through their employer say they’re somewhat or very helpful with providing resources to help them make informed decisions about their healthcare plan.
