Leaders of Change
Bringing together leaders and decision makers from a variety of businesses, the DFW Business Group on Health is a regional, employer-sponsored healthcare coalition.
We understand that employers want to provide health care benefits that meet their employees’ needs and offer the best value. In 2012, metroplex employers spent an average of $11,214 per employee annually for health care benefits, a 3.4% increase over 2011 costs. Costs in 2013 are expected to increase by 6.2%. Employees’ out-of-pocket share will climb to $3,001 on average in 2013.*
