Projection Of 2018 Health Care Benefit Costs Of U.S. Large Employers

According to an annual survey by the National Business Group on Health, the percentage increase in health care benefit costs that large companies will see next year is similar to 5% cost increases employers have experienced for five years. Since employers generally cover about 70% of worker costs, employees’ 30% share in 2018 will be approximately $4,400, which includes premium and out-of-pocket expenses.
