Recent legislation now requires New Jersey state employees to contribute a graduated percentage toward their health benefit plans, starting at no less than 1.5% of annual salaries. For employees used to paying very little, this change could be significant. State municipalities with an eye on health care cost savings have an opportunity to minimize the impact on their employees by looking at alternatives such as self-funded health programs.
Some of the advantages of self-funding include lower contribution costs for employees and overall health plan savings of 20% or more for employers. This is because self-funding allows employers to provide specific benefit needs rather than the same one-size-fits-all program for everyone.
