Description:

Le financement d’une vaste gamme d’avantages sociaux entraîne pour les employeurs des dépenses allant jusqu’à l’équivalent de 40 % de leur masse salariale. À cela s’ajoutent les coûts découlant des difficultés d’accès au système public de santé lorsque les employés sont en attente d’un diagnostic ou d’un traitement. Cette problématique est illustrée dans l’affaire du Dr Day – directeur du Cambie Surgery Centre à Vancouver –, portée devant la Cour suprême de la Colombie-Britannique. L’accès aux soins fournis par le secteur privé sera amené à s’agrandir. Quelles en seront les répercussions pour les employeurs et leurs employés?

 

Par ailleurs, la hausse du coût des nouveaux médicaments (notamment les thérapies biologiques) a une profonde incidence sur les coûts de régimes d’assurance maladie subis par les employeurs. Les promoteurs de ces régimes ainsi que leurs fournisseurs affrontent des défis jamais vus. Notre présentation abordera ces questions cruciales de manière éclairée, afin de vous permettre de comprendre comment elles vous affectent, que vous soyez employeur ou employé.
