Most employers expect to keep health care coverage
LA Observed

For what it’s worth, eight out of 10 say they’ll continue providing benefits over the next three years, according to a survey by Deloitte. Just 10 percent expect to drop their coverage and another 10 percent aren’t sure. But don’t be surprised if employers start looking for cheaper alternatives, especially if the Affordable Care Act results in higher premiums. Of course, much of the ACA doesn’t take effect until 2014 and until then all these forecasts remain mostly guesswork.
