The 2022 Large Employers’ Health Care Strategy and Plan Design Survey asked large employers about changes they made to their health care programs and benefits in 2021, while looking ahead to 2022. This year is crucial, as it is when employers expect a course-correction after the tumultuous 2 years in the grasp of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As in previous years, employers were surveyed about health care cost trends, benefit design changes, top cost drivers and health policy priorities. Timely topics—virtual health and advanced primary care—were expanded to explore additional employer actions. Rounding out the 2022 survey is a new section exploring efforts focused on health equity.

These results reflect the perspectives and plan designs of 136 large employers that cover more than 8 million lives.
