Workers want merged benefits, survey finds

According to a WellPoint survey, most respondents believe merging these services might lead to better prices, help them save time and simply keep them from getting "stressed out."

"Members aren't the only ones who prefer bringing together medical, dental, vision and life/disability services," says Jeff Spahr, staff vice president of Vision and Voluntary Services for WellPoint. "According to a recent WellPoint study, many employers prefer purchasing multiple benefits from the same family of companies as well, because of better pricing, better customer service and the convenience of a single point of contact."
