MEDICAL COSTS: Employers paying $9,248 PEPY in 2013

This is the 18th annual survey of trends in employee benefits offered by large employers (over 1,000 employees).

LARGE EMPLOYERS: Mean Per Employee Per Year Medical and Drug Costs Expected in 2013

  • $9,248 paid by employer (76%)
  • $2,888 paid by employee (24%)
  • $12,136 total (100%)

This survey provides a tremendous amount of information about leading edge employee benefit trends, including an examination of how large employers are planning to respond to implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Among the trends examined — likely discontinuation of commitment to funding post-65 retiree health care and continued emphasis on wellness incentives.  Trends affecting account-based health plans (ABHPs) are also reviewed. 

Why do I like this report?  1.) Authoritative source.  2.) Data rich.  3.) Gives some near-term trend data.  4.) Best practices of industry leaders.
