Modern Healthcare

A tiny fraction of large employers say they are likely to terminate their workers’ healthcare coverage in 2014, when the state-based insurance exchanges become operational, according to a survey by Mercer, a consulting firm. Just 6% of employers with 500 or more workers said they plan to drop coverage and allow workers to purchase individual policies through exchanges. Only 3% of businesses with 10,000 or more employees said they would stop offering health benefits.
