Employers want to provide high quality care; however, they are looking at a long time dilemma of providing benefits and coverage that enables access at a reasonable cost. National Alliance has focused on the importance of employer education in cancer care since its initial deep dive report, Achieving Value in Cancer Care was launched in 2019.
Achieving Value in Cancer Care
Strategies for Supporting Employees and their Families
The number of cancer survivors in the US is at a record high. The combination of intentional, focused benefit plan designs; trusted strategic healthcare and benefits partnerships; and attention to health equity issues will contribute to ensuring high-value cancer care in the workplace that leads to even greater gains.
The National Cancer Institute estimates the average cost of medical care and drugs is approximately $42,000 in the year following a cancer diagnosis. With cancer patients facing serious debt on top of disease, it’s important for employer-sponsored benefits to consider opportunities to mitigate financial hardships.
