How to Control Your Health Plan Costs
Join us for this exciting new topic!



Think the new health care reform law will cure your soaring health premiums?

Think again.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says, “This law is largely about the worthy goal of expanding access to coverage, rather than the pressing imperative of addressing explosive health care costs … several provisions will actually increase health care costs.”

Health premiums have risen 131% in the past decade. The average family-coverage premium rose to $13,375 last year … and is forecast to run as high as $30,803 by 2019. And YOU’LL be paying the lion’s share
$22,500 per family per year on average.

That’s just not sustainable for your organization
