BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Mercer to launch health insurance exchange for Medicare-eligible retirees

Reprints

Mercer L.L.C. said it is launching a new health insurance exchange in which retired employees eligible for Medicare can choose from an array of different health care plans.

While the prevalence of employers offering coverage to Medicare-eligible retirees continues to decline, about one-third still do, according to Mercer.

Through an exchange, employers no longer directly offer coverage, relieving them of a significant administrative burden while giving retirees more benefit choices, Mercer notes.

In addition, the exchange, which Mercer is offering along with Connextions, Inc., a technology solutions company, will provide assistance to retirees during enrollment periods and throughout the year.
