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.

The tax on high-cost health plans, which are often referred to as Cadillac plans, is expected to impact a considerable share of the plans provided by healthcare organizations for their own employees, as much as 39% by 2020. The implications are significant because the excess-benefits tax requires the employer to pay 40% on the value of the portion of the plan that exceeds thresholds set by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Employers also need to consider that the tax is measured as a direct function of plan cost, and not actuarial plan value, and that a number of factors can drive excise-tax exposure.

S&P DJI combined its knowledge and experience in developing leading indices with HIA’s experience in the healthcare market to develop the first index series of its kind, based on actual healthcare claims data.

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.
