The article focuses on the advice of Brenda Van Nest, account executive of the Benefit Specialists of New York in Sycruse, for employers worrying about the health care reform bill in the U.S. She suggests employers to relax and stop thinking about the law's implications when they will be delayed in providing health insurance to employees. Van Nest points out the bill will involve many changes and will give enough time for employers to adjust and understand its provisions.
