Walgreen moves health coverage to private exchange

Walgreen Co. will become the latest big employer to send its workers shopping for their health insurance coverage instead of providing a few plan choices for them. The nation's largest drugstore chain said Wednesday Sept. 18, 2013 that it will start giving workers a contribution toward the cost of coverage and then send them to a private health insurance exchange where they will pick from as many as 25 plans. Walgreen currently offers its workers two to four options depending on where the employee lives. (AP Photo/Lisa Poole, File)
