Bloomberg has an interview with Walgreen CEO Gregory Wasson, in which he says that he believes that employers looking to attract high-quality employees will continue to offer health care benefits. “We’re going to continue to see large employers want to offer high-quality health insurance,” he says. “The private sector is advancing health care in this country.

The story notes that Walgreen is moving its employees "into a private health insurance exchange run by Aon Plc. (AON) for company-subsidized coverage," believing that this is the best way to provide high-quality care and wellness programs at affordable prices.
