Spending on health care rose less than 0.3% this summer, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a strong sign that the health-cost curve may be flattening over the long term. In fact, a June report found that total health care spending actually declined in the first quarter of 2014.

Earlier this year, Pricewaterhouse-Coopers predicted that employer health costs would grow 6.8% in 2015.
