Why employees want their employers to step it up.
Healthcare costs in the U.S. today are out of control. Premiums continue to rise, yet employers have little to no insight behind why, resulting in employees paying the price through rising costs, year after year. As a result, many employees are choosing to skip their healthcare options altogether.
The dirty secret is that, as employees become less healthy by resisting care and treatment, they become more expensive to insure. For both the employee and the employer, it’s a lose-lose.
Something has to change.
Maestro Health commissioned a survey in 2019 to gauge employees’ feelings about the state of their healthcare. Our top takeaway: employers need to step up and truly address the cost struggle and provide better support and resources.
