Why your company might not offer a high-deductible plan next year

WASHINGTON -- After years of passing on more and more health-care costs to employees, companies are slowing their adoption of high-deductible plans next year, according to a survey of more than 100 large U.S. employers. That relief could be temporary. Companies are waiting to see if lawmakers will repeal the health-care plan's "Cadillac tax" on high-cost health coverage, which is a levy on individual health premiums greater than $10,200. A roll-back would keep employers from having to shift workers into plans where they bear more of the up-front costs of their insurance.
