While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare). While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend. More and more, employers are looking for benefits strategies that help prevent chronic disease and, if it is present, encourage early, efficient treatment. The brass ring is getting employees to proactively manage their own health by adopting healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthily. It’s better for the employees, it increases productivity, and it reduces health care expenditures. So how are organizations today looking to craft health and well-being plans that deliver real results for employers and employees alike? This white paper looks at three key areas where new and innovative approaches are changing the equation.

Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.

Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs): • Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers • Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections • Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections • One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated with intravascular air embolism • Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure.

In a three-year retrospective study that analyzed health care claims and wearable device data from a self-insured employer, Springbuk looked at the potential impact of Fitbit technology as part of a wellness program. The analysis shows that connected health and fitness interventions can close the gap between the everyday actions that change health and drive outcomes for employee health and employer cost. Some of the key findings include: * Employees who opted into the Fitbit program demonstrated significant cost savings when compared to the control group. * Engaged users cost less than non-engaged users. * The opportunity for cost savings is potentially the highest with less active individuals.
