The article reports that 39% “of large employers offer only high-deductible plans, up from 7 percent in 2009, according to a survey by the National Business Group on Health.” However, “some employers are beginning to have second thoughts,” with “a handful of companies, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and CVS Health Corp.,” planning “to reduce deductibles or cover more care before workers are exposed to the cost.”
