Health Care most critical issue facing nation … what’s new? 𗁙

Guns or butter? Pay for health care or save for retirement?

Workers rank health care as the most critical issue in the nation, according to new research from EBRI.  The survey also finds that a majority of workers describe the health care system as poor or fair, though workers’ satisfaction in their own health plans remains high.

Rising health care costs have implications for financial wellbeing among workers. Of the one-half of workers reporting cost increases, 26 percent state they have decreased their contributions to retirement plans, and 43 percent have decreased their contributions to other savings.

The survey was made possible with funding support from the following organizations: AXA Equitable Financial Services, LLC, Cigna, Mercer LLC, Prudential Financial Inc., The Segal Group, Inc., and Unum Group

  1. “The survey also finds that a majority of workers describe the health care system as poor or fair, though workers’ satisfaction in their own health plans remains high.”

    Hmmm… Strong correlation between health care system and government.
    Voters have very negative opinions of congress but continue to re-elect incumbents.
    Curious divergence of opinion between global and local.
