NBGH Employer Survey on Purchasing Value in Health Care

By OnSite Clinics Editor

The results of the annual National Business Group on Health employer survey have been recently released.  This 18th survey performed by NBGH in association with Towers Watson reflected some interesting data.  First, the expected total average healthcare expense for employees will be about $12,100 in 2013 which is the lowest year-to-year increase in this cost in 15 years – nearly the entire time the survey has been conducted, but still 5.1% above last year.  However, the employee borne share of this expense is up by 42% over the last 5 years (with employees now contributing 37% of the total cost of their health care as opposed to 34% in 2011, and, according to the survey, employers plan to continue increasing this employee split in the future).
