What Are the Projected 2022 Health Plan Cost Trends?

For the first time in the 25 years that Segal has conducted the Health Plan Cost Trend Survey, actual 2020 trends were negative for medical and dental due to deferred and eliminated care. The survey found projected medical plan cost increases for 2022 are similar to pre-pandemic increases.

On October 25, we hosted a webinar about the key findings from Segal’s Health Plan Cost Trend Survey. We discussed actual health cost historic trends, and also reviewed the top strategies group health plans are using in 2021 to mitigate increasing health plan costs while maintaining high-quality standards and access to healthcare goods and services.
