Businesses Want More Guidance

February 11, 2011

Many American businesses want more guidance from the Obama administration before they make decisions about the health care benefits they offer, according to a new poll, reports The Hill.

  • The Society for Human Resource Management conducted the poll in late December, before a federal judge struck the law down and the House voted for repeal.
  • At the time, 48 percent of respondents said they were waiting for more regulatory guidance from the administration on specific provisions of the reform law, while 13 percent said they were hoping for full repeal.
  • Fewer than 2 percent have decided to drop coverage, and another 27 percent wanted to conduct a study first; another 22 percent said they were unsure.
