NABE Survey: Next Decade Will Be Marked By Rising Health Costs Fox Business: NABE Economic Survey: Health Care Costs To Rise Over Next DecadeA group of polled economists believe fewer employers will provide health-care coverage for workers over the next decade as the planned overhaul to the system takes effect. The National Association of Business Economics on Monday released its latest Economic Policy Survey, and 60% of the economists surveyed believe fewer businesses will provide insurance for workers over the next ten years. In addition, nearly three-quarters of the respondents believe health-care costs will continue to grow as a share of GDP in the next 10 years if the Affordable Care Act is not repealed. The NABE survey is based on the responses of 236 members of the association (Rogers, 9/25).
