A new International Foundation survey finds that although the majority of single employers believe ACA has had a negative impact on their company, fewer than one percent plan to discontinue offering health care benefits.
The report, 2014 Employer-Sponsored Health Care: ACA's Impact, analyzes employers' concerns with ACA and the health care law's challenges and opportunities. The survey specifically looks at plan design and funding, methods for communicating with employees, reactions to health insurance exchanges, cost management initiatives, potential impact on health care benefit costs, and more.

Deployed on April 17, 2014, the survey is the fifth in a series on how single employer plans are being affected by ACA. Participants were single employer plans (including corporations) in the databases of the International Foundation and the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists (ISCEBS). Survey responses were received from 691 human resources and benefits professionals, and industry experts. The surveyed organizations represent a wide base of U.S. employers from nearly 20 different industries.
