COOPERS & LYBRAND SURVEY ON HEALTH CARE REFORM

 NEW YORK, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Coopers & Lybrand recently conducted a survey to gauge the reaction of employers to various aspects of the proposed health care reforms. More than 1,400 employers of all sizes responded.
 Among key findings are:
 -- Half of the respondents said that reform will diminish the quality of health care their employees receive.
 -- Two-thirds disagree that their employees will be better off under reform.
 -- 73 percent say health care alliances will be overly bureaucratic and unsympathetic to employers' needs.
 -- 71 percent think a patchwork of state-based health care reform programs could wreak havoc with company health benefit programs.
 -- 64 percent say the Clinton proposals will hurt their company's efforts to manage costs.
 Of 1,434 companies responding to the survey 37 percent have fewer than 500 employees; 41 percent have 501 to 5,000 employees and 15 percent have more than 5,000 employees. The remaining 7 percent did not disclose their size.
 The survey was conducted over the past four weeks as details of the Clinton proposal began to emerge.
