"A top challenge for 43% of the nearly 2,100 surveyed employees is understanding what their health plan covers. Less than half are comfortable explaining common health benefits terms, such as co-pay or deductible, to a friend or co-worker; fewer than one in four feels comfortable describing health savings accounts, co-insurance, and terms such as formulary."
