Employer-provided medical benefits costs in Canada will rise seven per cent in 2022, according to a new survey by Aon.

The annual global medical trend rates survey found the expected increase for Canadian employer-sponsored medical plan costs is due to a combination of higher costs for dental care, paramedical expenses and prescription drugs. It was conducted among 108 Aon offices with responses reflecting the medical trend expectations of Aon professionals based on their interactions with plan sponsor clients and carriers.
