Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 31, 2015
The new book “The End of Employer-Provided Health Insurance: Why It’s Good for You, Your Family, and Your Company” is co-authored by Paul Zane Pilzer and Rick Lindquist featured in Barnes and Noble on 5th Avenue in New York City.
In a new book, Lindquist and Pilzer predict more than 100 million Americans will move from employer-provided to individually purchased health insurance over the next 10 years. The book focuses on this shift, which Lindquist and Pilzer believe will be led by small businesses.
“We are at the beginning of a paradigm shift in the way businesses offer employee health benefits and the way Americans get health insurance—a shift from an employer-driven defined benefit model to an individual-driven defined contribution model,” says Lindquist. “This parallels a similar shift in employer-provided retirement benefits that took place two to three decades ago from defined benefit to defined contribution retirement plans.”
“Due to the significant cost advantage for business owners and their employees in the individual market, we predict 60 percent of businesses will eliminate traditional employer-provided health insurance in favor of defined contribution healthcare and individual health plans over the next three years.”
