A survey has indicated that cost increases of employer-provided health insurance have slowed in the past two years.

However, employers are of the view that the cost would increase in 2014. It is believed that the cost of employer-provided health insurance slowed in 2013 partly because more companies are adopting high-deductible, consumer-directed plans.

The cost of health insurance for medical, dental and other health coverage at employers with 10 or more workers increased only two per cent in 2013, the survey said, which is down from a four per cent increase last year.
