Adventist HealthCare CEO: Don't drop your company health plan
A prominent health system CEO implored the Washington region's employers to not drop their company health plans in response to the Affordable Care Act, predicting disastrous consequences for the industry if they do. So far, most companies aren't taking that step. But enough have to raise the alarm for William "Bill" Robertson, CEO of Gaithersburg-based Adventist HealthCare, which operates two Montgomery County hospitals and network of affiliated services."Each one of you has a huge role in making sure that the health care system stays viable," Robertson said, addressing an event hosted by Bisnow on Wednesday, later adding: "If we as employers cease to create the employer-sponsored health plan coverage, it will have a horrific impact on the health care delivery system of the United States."
