I think this will be a trend worth watching.

What happens when big government controls all employee benefits? How will these options be communicated?

Christine Miller

That is a good question. Government-run health care would dramatically change how we do benefits communications today(along with many other aspects of our curent health care system).

If there is no more private insurance, it will be up to the government to communicate all heatlth care options. Employers, however, may still offer other benefit plans, and will still have the task of communicating those plans.

But, we still have a long way to go in the health care debate before we can assume this is the direction our country will go in. Let's see what happens in the Senate.

The Senate will never pass the bill as it stands. Even if it's heavily rewritten, I can't see the US going to universal healthcare. It's un-American.
