In February and March 2014, Pacific Resources conducted a survey to capture the current perspective on private exchanges from some of the largest employers in the United States.

The survey results show that the majority of Large Employers remain fully committed to providing an array of company-sponsored benefits but show varied levels of confidence and interest in private health insurance exchanges.

Other key survey findings are:

  1. Employer-sponsored benefits are viewed as a strategic asset
  2. The perspective of Large Employers on private exchanges is evolving, and confidence and interest is varied
  3. Cost is the driving factor for considering the move to a private exchange
  4. The majority of Large Employers want to remain self-insured if they move to a private exchange

These findings are highlighted in a free Executive Summary, Private Healthcare Exchanges: The Large Employer Perspective.

The companies surveyed represent nearly three million employees and 5.9 million covered members, with a median employee population of 23,000. Approximately 75 percent of the companies that responded to the survey are ranked in the Fortune 1000, with several listed in the top 50.

The survey was conducted online during February and March 2014, with question design and response analysis assistance provided by Milliman. Respondents were senior human resource or benefits executives with decision-making authority within their organizations.
