General Motors will move to high-deductible insurance plans

Wall Street Journal Health Blog, October 26, 2009

General Motors will offer only high-deductible health insurance to its salaried workers starting next year, the latest sign of the way employers are looking to shift some of the burden of rising health costs to workers, according to the Wall Street Journal Health Blog. One recent survey found that nearly two-thirds of employers plan to shift more of the cost of care to workers and their families through higher premium contributions, deductibles, and copayments.
