Date:3/22/2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Average healthcare costs for U.S. employers increased 7.3 percent in 2009, according to study published today by Thomson Reuters. The year-over-year increase topped the 2008 rate of 6.1 percent and occurred in a year when the U.S. inflation rate was negative.  

The study analyzed insurance claims data for 144 small, medium-sized, and large companies that provided health benefits to 9.5 million individuals from 2007-2009. Data for the study was derived from the Thomson Reuters MarketScan® Commercial Claims and Expenditures Database.

Key findings:

  • Employer Costs Outpace Overall Healthcare Spending: Average healthcare costs for employers in the study rose 7.3 percent in 2009 while overall U.S. healthcare spending (which includes Medicare, Medicaid, and other payers) grew at a more modest 4.8 percent, according to National Health Expenditures data from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Office of the Actuary.
