If Congress moves to tax employee health benefits, 26% of workers say they'll seek less-expensive coverage, 21% will attempt to purchase coverage directly from insurers and 9% say they will forgo health insurance, according to an Employee Benefit Research Institute survey. The survey also found that 38% of workers say they'd like to maintain their current coverage, 34% would prefer to select their own coverage using the money their employer spends on health insurance and 23% would rather receive money from their employers and decide whether to buy insurance.
