  • Aon released a report projecting that employer health costs could increase by 6.5 percent next year – more than double the 3 percent increase that employers saw in 2022. According to the report, the average costs per employee will reach $13,800 in 2023, compared to $13,020 for the 2022 plan year. Much like the rest of the industry, employers saw far lower medical claims costs during the COVID-19 pandemic, with costs returning to more typical growth levels over the past year and inflation likely to play a role in driving up costs moving forward.
