Join Us as We Discuss the What, Why and How

In 2023, the average cost per claimant for Ozempic® was $5,550, an 18% increase from 2022. Ozempic now ranks as the second highest-paid drug, behind Humira®, according to Unison’s annual book of business report. The number of individuals taking Ozempic increased 135% year-over-year, contributing to the climb in overall healthcare spend*.

According to the CDC, approximately 42% of adult Americans are classified as obese, but this number exceeds 73% when adding in overweight individuals. ​​

Understanding the value of weight loss drugs, potential ROI, treatment plans and wraparound service options are critical as you determine your organizations’ long-term employee benefits strategy.
