In addition, with public exchange plan premiums escalating, some employers feel they cannot rely on exchanges to replace their own programs, said Steve Wojcik, vice president of public policy at the National Business Group on Health in Washington.

Still, exchange enrollment may be lagging for unrelated reasons.

Despite a massive government outreach program, millions of uninsured U.S. residents still are not aware of the availability and size of premium subsidies to the lower-income uninsured, Mr. Wojcik said.
