Employers Vague On Health Care Reform Costs

Although health care reform is a top concern for U.S. employers, most organizations have not measured its cost impact, according to a survey released today by the Willis Human Capital Practice, a unit of Willis Group Holdings plc (NYSE:WSH), the global risk advisor, insurance and reinsurance broker.

Only 37% of respondents have identified the cost impact of health care reform on their health plans in 2014. While this is an increase over the 28% of respondents that had identified these costs in last year’s survey, “it demonstrates that for many organizations, determining an accurate assessment of these figures is still a challenge,” the survey said.
