Following is an excerpt:

Bankrate reports 150 million Americans receive their insurance through an employer. The survey was conducted among 1,005 adults via phone by Princeton Survey Research Associates International. ?...

Larry Kocot says the survey reflects a movement by employers to shift the responsibility of insurance costs to workers. ?...

"There are a growing number of businesses shifting their costs to employees so it doesn't surprise me to see these numbers," Kocot says. "This is to be expected. Employers and larger organizations may take this opportunity to revisit and rethink their benefits strategies. They have to continue to control costs." ?...
