The cost of getting your health insurance through work will go up an average of 5 percent next year, according to a new survey of large employers by the National Business Group on Health.

For employers, the biggest driver of the cost increases is the price of specialty drugs. Other factors included high-cost claims and long-term conditions, according to the NBGH survey.

In addition to price increases, the National Business Group on Health highlighted several other changes that insurers are making to their health plans that you may see in open enrollment this fall.
