Workers fear employer shift to PPACA exchange plans
Many U.S. workers hate the idea of getting health coverage from the new Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchange plans.
Jonathan Easley looks at workers’ views on public exchange SHOP plan coverage for The Morning Consult, in a summary of results from a voter poll the organization commissioned.
Easley found that 63 percent of the likely voters who participated are at least somewhat concerned about the thought of getting “qualified health plan” (QHP) coverage from an exchange.
Forty percent said they are very concerned or extremely concerned.
Only 16 percent thought moving to an exchange group QHP would improve their health benefits.
