Towers Watson Report on Health Care and Employers

Towers Watson –
May 1, 2010

A report from Towers Watson details employer reactions to Obamacare:

Employers have little hope that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will help them achieve their top goals to decrease health care cost trend and improve workforce health. Indeed, most employers are convinced that health care reform will lead to increased costs and a stepped-up exodus from employer-provided retiree medical coverage, but they remain committed to their role in providing employer-based coverage — at least for now, according to the findings of a May 2010 Towers Watson survey on health care reform.
