Walgreens to move workers into healthcare exchange

The largest U.S. drugstore chain is planning to move its employees into a private healthcare exchange similar to the marketplaces created by ObamaCare, according to reports.

The decision from Walgreens comes as several major companies are altering the way they administer health benefits in response to rising costs.

IBM and Time Warner have said they will shift retirees into private exchanges, while Trader Joe's is planning to move part-time workers into the public marketplaces created by the healthcare law.
