WHY WE DO IT: IT'S WHAT MERCER MARSH HAS SHOWN
POOR QUALITY MEDICAL CARE DRIVES BENEFIT COSTS

Mercer Marsh has shown that poor quality medical care is driving rising benefit and disability costs. Amplified by changing workplace dynamics, increasing awareness of mental health, an aging workforce and on-demand medical certificates by overwhelmed doctors, even the best benefit plans, with all the ‘bells & whistles’ and with disability management, are rendered less effective when built on the shifting foundations of poor-quality care. It’s clear that the highest quality Evidence-Based medical care is what’s needed to control benefit costs.
