    SHRM Learning Objective:  Health Cost Equation to Better Manage Health Risk

    For most employers, healthcare costs are the fastest growing line item on the corporate PnL, yet most managers have little to no insight on what drives healthcare costs, or how to best manage those costs. This presentation will unlock the drivers of rising healthcare costs, and discuss real risk management and cost containment strategies. By understanding the Health Cost Equation, this presentation will discuss how HR leaders can begin to change the healthcare dialogue around the corporate boardroom table.

    • Understanding of what drives healthcare pricing

    • Understanding of what drives healthcare utilization

    • Understanding of what employers can control and what they cannot control with respect to managing health risks

    • Understanding of viable strategies to manage health risk
