Supporting Cancer Survivors in the Workplace and Managing Costs

Supporting Cancer Survivors in the Workplace and Managing Costs
There are more cancer survivors in the workplace than ever before — and that’s great news. But this poses a growing challenge to employers who are struggling to control health care costs and help their workers lead healthier lives.

There are tools to help employers meet that challenge through benefit design, online resources, wellness programs and other initiatives. Join this webinar to learn how your company can offer support to employees facing a frightening diagnosis and better manage the high cost of treating cancer.

Cancer costs employers an estimated $264 billion a year in medical care and lost productivity. Thanks to medical advancements, the vast majority of the 14 million survivors today return to work, and their numbers are growing.
We'll talk about:
  • The evolution of cancer in the workplace from taboo topic to public acceptance and awareness.
  • The latest research on cancer diagnoses and treatment costs.
  • Innovative approaches to benefit design and managing pharmacy costs.
  • An overview of "An Employer’s Guide to Cancer Treatment and Prevention,” a toolkit by the National Business Group on Health and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).
