Every business leader likely knows that health care isn't working for their bottom line or their workforce. And in the unlikely event that don't already know it, they likely realize that it's going to stop working – and possibly soon.

Brokers also know this and the days of the status quo are numbered. Fully insured plans are not going to continue working, especially not with premiums and out-of-pockets as high as they are today. However, if you're close to retirement, or your clients are all big corporations or government entities with deep pockets, you might not be seeing these trends quite yet.
