Healthcare reform regulations, increasing costs, and more competition are driving employers and their health plans to focus more than ever on opportunities to reduce cost trends. For example, the country experienced a 3.0% growth in per capita gross (allowed) medical and pharmacy costs from 2012 to 2013. Truven Health Analytics anticipates those costs in 2014 and 2015 will increase by 4% to 5% or more. By taking a data-driven approach, payers can manage costs and, ultimately, make their benefit programs sustainable in the context of healthcare reform. They can also maximize opportunities to improve population health and productivity and optimize the delivery of care.

Benefits, especially insurance benefits, are extremely important to employees and one of the main things they take into consideration when they make employment decisions. Many employers that offer insurance generally offer a combination of health, dental, and vision insurance. Sometimes dental and vision insurance are offered separately from health insurance, or they may all be rolled into one plan.

This white paper attempts to clear up some of the confusion about the requirements mandated by health care reform by addressing three key areas: reforms already in place, looming deadlines for employers, and open issues for individuals. Because the implementation process is a process, there are aspects to health care reform that remain open questions. We address the areas above with the information available at the time of publication.

The U.S. spends more on health care than any country in the world – to the tune of $7,290 per capita per year. Yet this massive spend does not equate to high quality care for Americans. As a result, $300 billion is wasted every year. If you’re a self-insured employer focused on driving down health care costs and better meeting the health care needs of your employees, this paper provides valuable and actionable insights to help you achieve this goal. This white paper reveals: • How low-quality care affects both the cost of care as well as patient outcomes • Five best practices in helping employees identify high-value providers

While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare). While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend. More and more, employers are looking for benefits strategies that help prevent chronic disease and, if it is present, encourage early, efficient treatment. The brass ring is getting employees to proactively manage their own health by adopting healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthily. It’s better for the employees, it increases productivity, and it reduces health care expenditures. So how are organizations today looking to craft health and well-being plans that deliver real results for employers and employees alike? This white paper looks at three key areas where new and innovative approaches are changing the equation.

Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.
