Health care costs remain a big concern for Minnesota employers
WILLMAR — There was no big surprise in most of the key findings of a recent statewide business survey on employer health benefits: The cost of providing employee health insurance continues to be the main concern.
Employers are using a range of tactics to hold down costs and employees are increasingly being asked to become more engaged in their health.
The annual survey, conducted by the Minnesota Health Action Group, provides a detailed snapshot of what’s happening with employer health benefits across the state.
The 39 participating companies included the private and public sectors and large and small employers, said Deb Krause, vice president of the Health Action Group.
