Early Health Exchange

Aon Hewitt’s new model would shift some of the risks in providing health coverage from employers to employees

Why wait for 2014, when state health insurance exchanges for individuals go into effect, or 2017, when states can establish exchanges for large employers? At least that’s what Aon Hewitt decided. The company will begin offering large companies—those with 1,000 or more workers—an exchange as early as next year.

Companies, including those that are self-insured, will select from a group of insurers providing plans that meet standards set by Aon and offer these to employees, with the company providing some portion of the premium.
