With the election settled, Congress and the White House, for the second time in less than a decade, are about to engage in a debate over the future of the nation’s health care system.

In a new survey by the Aon consulting firm, 48% of employers said the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate was their primary health care concern going into the next administration. The ACA’s play-or-pay requirement rated more than twice as much concern as any other issue.

According to Aon’s survey of more than 800 employers, conducted approximately a week after the election, other top areas of concern include:

  • Prescription drug costs: 17%
  • “Cadillac” excise tax: 15%
  • Tax exclusion limits on employer- sponsored health care: 10%
  • Paid leave laws: 8%
  • Employee wellness programs: 2%.
