Event Description

The RIBGH Annual Healthcare Summit will explore and identify the impact that behavioral health costs have on employers' insurance premiums.

The Summit will focus on the following:

  • According to original research in Health Affairs, the growth of national health spending for mental disorders in 2013 exceeded spending on all other medical conditions including heart, trauma, and cancer.
  • According to a 2015 Truven report, the New England states spend more on mental health services than any other region in the nation and Rhode Island spends more than any other state in New England.

Join our Summit discussion to hear national and local experts provide employers with valued information to better understand behavioral health costs and improve results.
