More options for employer health care benefits

September 22, 2011

Yesterday I spoke with Emily Chasen, writer for the Wall Street Journal CFO journal, and today she published this piece about the future of private exchanges as a mechanism for providing health care benefits to active employees. You must be a subscriber to see the whole story, but here’s a snip:

“…a corporate exchange could be a middle ground between keeping a group plan and leaving employees to  use the state exchanges. Regulations that would affect corporate exchanges are still being written, so most companies will probably want to wait for the new laws to take effect in 2014 before deciding whether to use them….According to Bryce Williams, CEO of health-care exchange operator Extend Health, such corporate exchanges could offer companies an alternative to buying group plans from a health insurer.”
