In the latest earnings transcripts, several top health insurers noted increases in revenues from voluntary benefits. Many companies have shifted some of the burden of paying for health benefits to the employee. While it was feared that this shift, caused by healthcare reform and partially by the recession, would adversely affect revenues, it does not appear to be the case. 

Health insurers are still being affected by high unemployment but are optimistic about job growth in 2011. Low interest rates have also affected the yields on the investments made by health insurers. 

Moving forward, health insurers have stabilized while successfully adapting to the post-reform and post-recession environment. Short-term success will likely be tied to employment data and long-term growth could hinge upon rising interest rates.
