Catastrophic Claims Report
Million-dollar+ claims continue to rise

What are your chances of having a catastrophic claim? Find out in Sun Life’s 5th annual catastrophic claims report. In this report, you will learn about the top 10 costliest claims conditions across time and industry, breast cancer prevalence, transplant trends, and much more.

The report is composed of data from high-cost medical claims during 2013–2016. A few key findings in the report include:
  • Million-dollar+ claimants were up 26% compared to 2012–2015.
  • Cancer continues to top the chart as the highest-cost claim.
  • The top four conditions remained relatively steady.
Watch for the next report later this summer on high-cost medication trends.

FMLA Absence
Control FMLA intermittent leave abuse

66% of HR professionals deal with chronic abuse of intermittent leave.  Having strict call-in and notice requirements can offer you legal protection and help reduce such abuse. Review our flyer,  Controlling FMLA intermittent leave abuse through call-in & notice requirements, to learn about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and its accompanying regulations. This flyer also highlights real-life court cases in which employees did not follow their employer’s call-in procedures.

Let us know about your company’s leave policy

Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI), a nonprofit health and productivity research organization, and Sun Life are partnering on a project to benchmark employers’ leave policies. This includes eligibility rules, allowed amounts of time off, wage replacement rates, and more.

We invite you to take this brief survey, which takes a few minutes to complete, about your company’s leave policies.

Your responses and participation in the survey will be kept confidential. In our next newsletter, we will provide a benchmark report on leave policies.
