NU Online News Service, March 24, 2003, 11:13 a.m. EST – Eastbridge Consulting Group Inc., Avon, Conn., has released “MarketVision ? The Employer Viewpoint,” a study of benefits financing mechanisms at 500 U.S. employers with at least 10 employees.

The authors found that more than half of the employers that offer medical insurance, prescription drug insurance and dental insurance require employees to share the cost.

The authors also found that many employers that offer group life insurance and group disability insurance continue to pay the full cost themselves.
