Timing the end of employer sponsored insurance (3 forecasts)

This is the way ESI ends…
not with a bang, but a whimper.

Recently, healthcare experts including Zeke Emanuel, Jon Gruber, and Capital IQ have forecasted the end of employer sponsored insurance (ESI). Although all believe ESI will ultimately fade away, they disagree on the exact timing. The chart below shows the forecasts of all three experts side-by-side:

Clearly, Capital IQ appears to predict the most radical and rapid transition, while Jon Gruber thinks it will happen more slowly. Either way, at Benefitter, we are here to help employers navigate through this monumental transition.
