Health Care News reported in July:

Large employers want more competitive health care and insurance markets than are possible under the Affordable Care Act, researchers at the American Health Policy Institute (AHPI) have found.

Seventy-nine percent of the employers AHPI surveyed say they should have the flexibility to design their own health care programs and “should be free from material financial, regulatory, or administrative incentives or disincentives that favor one type of healthcare approach over another,” states the May 2017 report, “Changing Attitudes Among Large Employers Towards Health Care Delivery: A 2017 Snapshot.”

Ninety-two percent of companies favor mandates requiring “complete and transparent access to health care cost quality and data to create a competitive marketplace,” the report states.

AHPI surveyed almost 400 companies providing health care benefits to more than 20 million Americans, according to a May 17 AHPI press release.
