ACTIN Beats Private Insurance Price Inflation

What can we see when we compare price increases for employer-sponsored health care versus Medicare? And how does ACTIN Care stack up?

Employer-sponsored health care 

For the 5-year period from 2014 to 2018, employer-sponsored health care spending increased 18%. During this same period, inflation increased at 7% (Healthcare Cost Institute, 2018 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Report). After adjusting for inflation, prices accounted for three-quarters of the overall cost growth. The prices that employer-sponsored plans paid for healthcare services, when looking at cost (the product of the price paid per unit of service and the number of units of the service), grew at twice the rate of inflation

Risk Management Tips - Ergonomics

Poor ergonomics can potentially contribute to injuries, a.k.a. musclo-skeletal disorders (MSD’s) including things like carpal tunnel, tendinitis, muscle strains and degenerative disc disease. More often however, poor ergonomics leads to micro-trauma, which is felt as muscular discomfort and/or muscular fatigue. Left unchecked, this micro-trauma can evolve over time to an actual injury. Whether micro-trauma or, an actual injury (macro-trauma), each can adversely impact work and personal productivity, and quality of life.
