Employers adding health benefits like chiropractic care, despite rising costs

In efforts to keep workers happy in a tight labor market, US employers are sweetening health benefits packages even as the cost of providing that coverage is rising at a rate nearly triple that of general inflation, results of a new survey suggest.

More employers are embracing programs that save money by improving health, such as programs that target specific chronic conditions like diabetes.

Employers also reported sharp increases in coverage of alternative treatments, like chiropractic care, offered by 78% of employer health plans – up 17 percentage points.
