Cyganiak Planning has found that the rising cost of healthcare is a top concern of businesses.  While cost shifting and making plan design changes is a way to mitigate short term spikes in cost, it is not enough for long term impact by promoting healthy lifestyles, employers can help reduce the impact of rising costs and improve employee consumerism and productivity.
