With the cost of employee health care benefits expected to increase next year at more than twice the rate of inflation, large U.S. employers are planning to have workers share more of the cost next year, according to a new survey by the National Business Group on Health, a non-profit association of 329, mostly large employers. The survey also found that more employers are adopting consumer driven health plans and making other changes to their benefit programs as various components of the health care reform law take effect.
