Q: Who best can control the huge growth in US healthcare expense?
A: Employers who offer health insurance.
Health insurance in the United States accounts for 17% of the GDP, and forecasts indicate that amount will rise to 20% in the not-too-distant future. That translates to an additional $600 billion of healthcare spending per year, and employers will foot the bill for a sizeable portion of those expenses.
