Employers are increasingly looking to privately run health insurance exchanges to lower their health care spending even as the Affordable Care Act's public exchanges prepare to open. Data from the Kaiser Family Foundation indicate 29% of employers with at least 5,000 employees are considering private exchanges, and a Towers Watson report noted that 37% of employers think private exchanges may be a viable option in 2014, while 57% said the same for 2015.
