2014 EMPLOYER SURVEY ON PURCHASING VALUE IN HEALTH CARE
[full-text, 32 pages]
Press Release 15 May 2014
Full Report: Towers Watson/NBGH 2013/2014 Employer Survey on Purchasing Value in Health Care
The New Health Care Imperative: Driving Performance, Connecting to Value
The 19th Annual Towers Watson/National Business Group on Health Employer Survey on Purchasing Value in Health Care tracks employers’ strategies and practices, and the results of their efforts to provide and manage health benefits for their workforce. This comprehensive report, The New Health Care Imperative: Driving Performance, Connecting to Value, identifies the actions of high-performing companies, as well as current trends in the health care benefit programs of U.S. employers with at least 1,000 employees.
The survey found that employers are clearly committed to providing subsidized health care benefits to active employees, even in an environment of continued health care cost increases, uncertainty about some provisions of health care reform and an economy that is slow to recover.
