Dave Patriarche:

It’s great to see that Buck & Benefits Canada is finally recognizing the fact that the factors insurers use, for trend calculations, in no way reflects the actual trend factors that employers are seeing in their plans.

This report, while useful in knowing what insurers use (and then remove through discounting), has been presented in the past as what employers should expect and that is not the case if working with a benefits specialist.
