Congress Braces for Showdown Over Health-Care Reform
Date:7/17/2009

ass this year but says many stakeholders -- employers included -- are anxious about the sweeping, "everything all at once" approach that lawmakers are pursuing amid a recession.

Mercer's recent survey of 329 U.S. employers found a majority of employers (67 percent) prefer a phased-in approach to health reform. Fifty-six percent of respondents agreed that health reform should boost incentives to improve health-care quality and efficiency.

Justine Handelman, executive director for legislative and regulatory policy at the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association in Washington, D.C., expressed support for the broad framework of the House bill but cited concerns with specific provisions, including the government-run health plan. "We're concerned that it could undermine the existing delivery system," she said.
