Private Company CEOs Size up Health Reform.
Although 70 percent of leading private companies have begun reviewing the new federal healthcare act, only 15 percent have taken specific action in response to its provisions. Nearly half of private company CEOs say they expect the new provisions to have a notable financial effect on their organizations. Thirty-one percent say it's too soon to tell. Compared with their survey peers, companies that don't anticipate a notable financial effect are forecasting well-above-average revenue growth for the next 12 months, whereas those anticipating a notable impact expect average revenue growth and have an above-average number of employees covered by their healthcare plans.
