San Francisco Chronicle

Workers will pay more for their health care next year as U.S. companies prepare for provisions of the overhaul signed into law by President Obama, according to a survey released Wednesday.

About 63 percent of businesses plan to make employees pay a higher percentage of their premium costs in 2011, said the National Business Group on Health in Washington, which surveyed 72 companies that employ more than 3.7 million people.
