Cost balancing and creating on-site clinics are some of the healthcare imperatives large employers are prioritizing this year, according to a survey from the Business Group on Health. 

The business group surveyed 136 large employers in June about their biggest healthcare challenges. The employers provide health insurance for more than 8 million people.

Here are their top five health priorities:

1. A rise in medical services, late-stage cancer diagnoses and long-term mental health and substance use issues 

2. A commitment to equity and addressing employees' social determinants of health

3. Appropriate access to mental healthcare services

4. On-site medical clinics in addition to virtual care options

5. A projected 6 percent increase in healthcare spending in 2021
