In our weekly Trends that Matter series, we provide engaging infographics from healthcare influencers to highlight general trends affecting the pharmaceutical industry. This week's featured topic is high-deductible health plans, (HDHPs.) These plans offer low monthly premiums to workers. In exchange, individuals pay larger costs at the time of care. 

In an annual survey on employer health benefits coverage, the Kaiser Family Foundation, (KFF) revealed the average annual out-of-pocket costs per worker increased approximately 230% from 2006 to 2015.

View the graphic below, created by the Kaiser Family Foundation, to learn more about the change in health plan offerings in recent years. 


In addition, the KFF report revealed the size of a company may impact the health benefits offered.
