The 2021 Large Employers’ Health Care Strategy and Plan Design Survey solicited information about employer approaches to health care and benefits in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing a window into leading ways that employers are addressing COVID through their benefit plans, programs and overall workforce strategy outlook. 

As in previous years, employers were also asked about virtual care offerings, the conditions that drive costs and are targets for delivery reform strategies, health care cost trends and benefit design changes. Additionally, employers from a variety of industries—including those companies facing serious financial difficulties due to the pandemic—took part in interviews to complement the findings of the survey. The discussions focused on the impact of COVID-19, the future of virtual care and the role of on-site services now and beyond.

These results reflect the perspectives and plan designs of 122 large employers that cover more than 9 million lives.
