Cancer and heart disease account for 37% of total stop-loss claim reimbursements over the past four years. This demonstrates once again the importance of a wellness program to catch chronic conditions, and reduce the risk of high-cost claims, at their earliest stages.

According to the latest high-cost claims and injectable drug trends analysis from stop-loss carrier Sun Life, the top three high-cost claim conditions – Malignant Neoplasm (which includes breast, colon, and other cancers); Leukemia, Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma; and Cardiovascular – totaled over $2.04 billion in reimbursements from 2019 to 2022.

MedBen WellLiving focuses on catching cancer, heart disease and other diseases as early as possible, encouraging your plan members to be proactive about personal wellness, rather than reactive. It’s an approach that translates to lower spend and a healthier employee population.
