A recent survey showed that health care costs for large employers spiked sharply in 2021 after remaining flat in 2020 due to nonemergency care being delayed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The number one drive of health costs was cancer care. Cancer has overtaken musculoskeletal conditions and cardiovascular care as the top driver of large companies’ health care costs.

So, what is an employee to do to reduce these costs?  One of the best options is to partner with independent private practices, such as ECHO, that deliver the highest the quality cancer care, in a cost-effective and proactive manner.
