Jeffrey Bauer, PhD, a medical economist and health-care futurist, forecast at the recent annual American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) & the Center for Association Leadership meeting that employers will continue to transition the burden in costs of health care to their employees by way of higher deductibles and premium sharing; consumers of health care will be more responsible for the costs when seeking services.
