Employers plan to continue health care coverage, but worry about future costs

A new study from Oliver Wyman shows companies considering alternative health care options

Employers want to provide health care benefits for their employees, but are concerned about their long-term ability to do so, according to a recently released survey from management consulting firm Oliver Wyman. Out of more than 1,300 employers surveyed, only 8 percent said they planned to end health care coverage for employees. Forty-two percent intend to maintain the status quo and 50 percent will continue to offer insurance, but anticipate major changes.

"The most critical points are that [employers] by and large have a very strong desire to take care of their employees," Oliver Wyman Partner Mindy S. Kairey told National Public Radio.
