Nine percent of employers surveyed recently reported plans to drop their insurance coverage when health insurance exchanges launch in 2014. The Towers Watson survey of 368 midsize to large companies found some of those companies will offer increased pay or other benefits to compensate for the loss of coverage. Preview data from the survey were released Wednesday but the international business consultancy will not release detailed results for several months, according to a spokesman.
