Survey: Overwhelming Majority Of Businesses Will Continue Offering Coverage Under Obamacare

Though Republican talking points suggest otherwise, more than 85 percent of employers in an International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans survey say they have no plans to stop offering health care plans for their employees when the Affordable Care Act takes full effect in 2014. The companies told the IFEBP that keeping there employees happy and healthy is essential to a successful business model. “These employers recognize that offering health care coverage is an important benefit that helps retain current employees, attract future talent, and increase employee satisfaction,” said International Foundation CEO Michael Wilson. —Ben Sherman
