Between a rock and a hard place: understanding the employer mind-set

, : Between a rock and a hard place: understanding the employer mind-set. Health Affairs 25(6): 1548-1555

Large and mid-size employers are "between a rock and hard place" when it comes to health benefits: They are both unable to manage their health care costs effectively or simply get out of offering these benefits entirely. Although there is considerable diversity in how employers approach health care, several goals underlie most of their decisions. It is unlikely that the current round of employer-based health initiatives will succeed at managing rising costs. As a result, employers are likely to become more interested than at any time in the past decade in exiting their roles as providers of health benefits.

We report here that HoxBlinc RNA first s...
