Which Cities Best Fund Employer-Based Family Health Care Plans?

Employee Benefits

Paychex examined the relationship between average wages and average employee health insurance contributions across metro areas with more than 1 million residents. Who works the fewest weeks each year to cover the costs of their family health care plans? Workers in Salt Lake City, UT, can fund their insurance plans (including dependents) with 1.6 weeks of work. Utah is among the states in which employees pay the same average percentage of the premium at all tiers of coverage.

Two metro areas in the Northwest (Portland–Vancouver–Hillsboro, OR/WA and Seattle–Tacoma–Bellevue, WA) claim the second and third place for fewest weeks. When it comes to percentage of the premium contributed by an employee, both states are on the low end: Washington workers contribute15%, while Oregon employees contribute 5%. Metro regions in Virginia, Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware/Maryland, and Minnesota/Wisconsin also rank on the low end for weeks worked. While insurance plans and wages diversely span different industries, jobs, and employers, this information provides a snapshot of family coverage across the nation.
