High cost claimants account for 1-2% of large employers’ populations, but make up about a third of overall health care costs. Large employers have several tools at their disposal to help employees and their dependents with complex conditions to navigate the health care system, manage their costs, and remain productive in the workplace. The Business Group is hosting a series of webinars with expert partners that will help large employers better understand certain high cost conditions and how they can help employees and their dependents manage them.
