Last year, employers predicted that they would see rising medical costs because of missed or delayed care – those predictions were correct.  

In a recent Business Group on Health survey, employers said delayed care has resulted in long-term mental health issues, increased medical services, and higher chronic condition management. The survey also revealed that cancer is now the top cost and healthcare trend driver.  

As HR, benefits, and health plan leaders, you need sustainable strategies and solutions that address these challenges.  

  • Challenges facing employers today and those anticipated for tomorrow  
  • Explore strategies for providing employees with the resources they need to reverse trends from Centers of Excellence to virtual care  
  • Share expert guidance on second opinions, cancer diagnoses, and treatments to help employees make high-quality decisions during times of stress and uncertainty

Watch the on-demand replay and receive a guide to what delayed care and cancer mean for your organization.
