Employees are overwhelmed, delaying care at high rates

A new report by Accolade, based on a Savanta employer healthcare survey, reveals that 49% of employees feel overwhelmed managing their own and their family members' healthcare. As a result, 65% have delayed or avoided care altogether. The top stressors identified are the cost of care, billing confusion, and difficulty finding a provider and making an appointment.

Accolade offers assistance in four key "moments that matter": receiving a new serious diagnosis, managing chronic health conditions, experiencing new symptoms, and finding a provider. More than two-thirds of employees seek support from employers in these moments.
