Study: 1 in 10 American employers to drop health care coverage

Almost one in 10 employers in the U.S. plans to drop health care coverage in reaction to President Obama’s health care reform, according to a study by the consulting company Deloitte. Eighty-one percent of companies surveyed intend to maintain insurance for their workers, while 10 percent remain unsure.
Currently, nearly two-thirds of Americans get health insurance through employers, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Services. Opponents of the Affordable Care Act have worried that companies will cut back on health insurance as the new law takes effect.
