Employer health costs are predicted to rise 8.5% in 2012

A new PricewaterhouseCoopers survey of 1,700 employers says employer health costs are predicted to rise 8.5% in 2012.

Employers say they’ll lessen that burden by pushing more costs onto employees through higher co-pays, increased deductibles and making out-of-network care less financially attractive for employees. The survey says 28% of employers will have deductibles of $1,000 or greater for in-network care next year, up from 11% in 2009.
