Healthcare Cost Trends September 24, 2014 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Presenters explore both sides of the cost trend analysis that are researched – actual historic trends and projections. What are the key drivers of the historic trends – price, utilization, level of service? Are hospital visits costing us more than professional services or are prescription drug costs starting to move the needle? And in reading the tea leaves of historical trends, what are the considerations made for estimates of future trends? How much do other segments of the economy really impact healthcare costs?
