As employers continue to struggle in the slow to recover U.S. economy and begin complying with the remaining provisions of the Affordable Care Act, many are implementing innovative strategies to control costs, provide employees with crucial health and wellness benefits and engage employees in their health care, their health and job performance.

Using a variety of cost control tactics, most employers expect to hold rising health care costs increases to 7% in 2012 and 2013, even with other pressures that increase costs. At twice the rate of inflation, these increases are eroding business profitability and hampering global growth.

At the same time, employers are increasingly concerned about the impact of poor health on health care costs and productivity. Many companies today have invested in programs that aim to improve the health and productivity of employees. Employers who aggressively manage their health plans have notably lower and more predictable cost trend. The National Business Group on Health provides members with practical benefits solutions to control health care costs while improving patient safety and care quality.
