Helping employers with benefits education is often cited as a key advantage of private health care exchanges. And while educating employees on their benefit choices was noted as a top challenge in a recent employer survey, only 2% of those surveyed have opted for a private exchange.
Nearly one-quarter (22%), meanwhile, have considered a private exchange but have chosen not to participate in one.
The cost of the Affordable Care Act remains a significant concern among those surveyed, with 60% saying they feel the cost of health care will rise as a direct result of the ACA. Sixty-five percent say educating employees on their benefit choices is their key challenge with respect to providing benefits.
