Survey: Employers Offer Caregiving Benefits, Aim to Manage Medical Utilization

A survey of employers and other private purchasers of health care conducted by the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions (NAHPC) found employers are “staying the course or accelerating their health benefit strategies” going forward.

According to the survey, 71% of respondents intend to continue their current strategy in 2021 and 63% intend to do the same in 2022. Employer benefit manager respondents also indicated that they support health reforms by large margins, rating the following “very or somewhat helpful”: 94% supported drug price regulation, 90% supported hospital price transparency, 81% supported surprise billing regulation and 79% supported hospital rate regulation. Notably, 50% of respondents supported a public health insurance option.
