Healthcare benefits continue to be in the spotlight and under the microscope. In light of health reform, employers are revisiting their healthcare benefits strategy and looking to manage escalating healthcare costs considering both new regulatory requirements and continuing cost pressures. While the strategies vary, several common themes emerge—accelerating consumerism and employee engagement, increasing accountability for improving the health and productivity of their workforces, dialing up incentives for more value-based delivery and investigating new alternatives such as private exchanges. Regardless, the Affordable Care Act has changed the healthcare benefits landscape forever, establishing new requirements and tax incentives, while affording new strategic opportunities to leverage the new dynamics of the changing healthcare marketplace.
PwC is pleased to announce the availability of our 2013 Health and Well-being Touchstone Survey. The 2013 survey data contains detailed benefits information provided by approximately 1,100 participating companies in 35 different industries across the nation.
PwC's annual Touchstone survey is one of the most comprehensive studies available on benefit plans offered by US-based employers. PwC conducted the 2013 survey, the sixth in the annual series, to uncover and keep track of key trends around benefit program strategy, design and administration.
The 2013 survey provides summary data on medical and prescription drug plan design, costs, COBRA rates, Wellness and Disease Management programs, work-life programs, fringe benefits, future healthcare strategies, retirement benefits, and health reform.
