From the press release:
A new report released today by Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies, finds that annual per employee health care costs will triple to nearly $29,000 over the next decade without significant marketplace reforms that reduce costs, expand coverage and improve delivery. These runaway costs, combined with a $56 billion cost shift to payors from uncompensated care, are threatening the employer-based system that currently provides coverage for the majority of Americans and their families.
