Big employers await healthcare clarity

The Register-Guard, May 13, 2013
Three Rivers Casino and Hotel in Florence has offered health insurance to full-time employees since 2004, when it opened in a tentlike structure off Highway 126. Today, the casino has more than 800 employees, and 85 percent are full-time and eligible for health insurance. The casino pays 80 percent of full-time employees' premiums and offers a family health plan for employees' spouses and children. So General Manager Michael Rose isn't expecting that the casino will have to change much to comply with the new health care rules taking effect Jan. 1.
