Most large employers to keep health insurance benefit

The Baltimore Sun, March 8, 2013
Most large employers don't expect to send their full-time employees to government health exchanges for insurance during the next five years, but some retirees and part-time workers will end up there, a new survey has found. The outlook for corporate insurance in the long term is less certain. Only about 26 percent of large employers surveyed were very confident their company will offer healthcare benefits in 10 years. That is a slight increase from last year's 23 percent, but a sharp drop from 73 percent five years ago.About one-half of the people in the United States who have health insurance receive it from their employers.
