To research insurance benefits or have a colonoscopy? You pick

Aflac asked people on the street whether they'd rather spend time researching their insurance benefits, give a public speech or have a colonoscopy.

Here's what they said:

1. On insurance benefit enrollment, one person said, "I think I understand it enough, but I don't understand it completely."

2. Aflac conducted a survey of 1,700 benefit-decision makers and 2,000 U.S.-based employees to gain insights into the insurance market. They presented facts during the video. The survey said 16 percent of people understood the total annual cost for their health insurance, "extremely well."

3. Forty-one percent of people said they'd rather do something uncomfortable — like publicly speak or undergo a colonoscopy, than research insurance benefits.

4. One person who opted for a colonoscopy said, "We don't have many options, we pretty much have to take what they gave us," when asked about insurance benefits.

Note: All percentages were insights from the 2018 Aflac WorkForces Report.
