Our Health and Well-being Touchstone Survey reports on changes to employer sponsored health plans. The 2018 Health and Well-being Touchstone Survey results show a shift from the past trends. While healthcare cost increases continue to outpace general inflation; other factors such as a tight labor market and an influx of cash from tax reform have allowed employers to hit the pause button resulting in more status quo than adoption of emerging strategies. However, with the continued changes in the healthcare economy – consolidations, new entrants, emerging technology, new partnerships/mergers – employers who seize this moment will leapfrog their competitors by offering more cost efficient programs that optimize spend while engaging employees/dependents. While major regulatory reform does not seem imminent, those who wait on the sidelines during this healthcare transformation may find themselves behind in the struggle to win the war for talent and for greater engagement.
