Given the number of Americans they insure and their collective purchasing power, employers are pivotal players in today’s healthcare system. As the Affordable Care Act and other healthcare policies face uncertainty, employers have the chance to use their voice to promote healthcare reform that will benefit all.

The stakes in the healthcare market are high. Employers today cover 177 million US employees and spend $668 billion on healthcare. By contrast, only about 20 million people are covered through the ACA’s public exchanges -- yet many of the proposed changes to the ACA will affect employer-sponsored coverage. That’s why it’s so important that any policy change be considered in light of the impact it will have on employers’ ability to provide employees with quality health insurance at a sustainable cost.
