12/18/14 Without Direct Employer Action, Alternate Health Care Delivery Models and Payment Reform May Stall at Current Levels: Aon Hewitt and Catalyst for Payment Reform
A joint pulse survey between Aon Hewitt , the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon (NYSE: AON), and Catalyst for Payment Reform , an independent, non-profit employer coalition pushing for better value in U.S. health care, shows that while employers find alternative provider delivery models and payment reform attractive, most admit they do not understand them or the value they provide. As a result, they may miss a significant opportunity to lead and improve results (health and financial) for their workforce and business. According to the soon-to-be-released joint survey of more than 220 companies: 75 percent do not understand payment transformation models 51 percent do not understand the cost and quality data provided by their carriers related to new models like Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) 71 percent are either unaware or need to learn more about the attribution process and how they are directly contributing to the payment of these new provider...

Leaving Matching Contributions on the Table Can Cost Young Workers in Retirement While participation in employer-provided 401(k) plans is strong among younger workers, data from Aon Hewitt , the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), reveals many workers in their 20s and 30s are not saving enough to take full advantage of their employer's 401(k) match—potentially leaving thousands of dollars on the table and negatively impacting their long-term financial health.

10/30/14 New Health Reimbursement Arrangement Solution from Aon Hewitt Enables Companies to More Efficiently Reimburse Retirees Transitioning to the Aon Retiree Health Exchange
Aon Hewitt , the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), today announced The Aon Retiree Contingent HRA™, a new and innovative health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) strategy that better aligns employer and retiree cost-management objectives and encourages retirees to make efficient health plan choices in the individual market. In general, most employers that move retirees to a private health exchange introduce an HRA to support the delivery of a tax-free reimbursement to pay for retirees' premiums and/or out-of-pocket costs.  Traditional HRA strategies allow employers to reduce cost to some extent while creating opportunities for most retirees to find equal or better coverage in the individual market. These approaches leverage a "one-size-fits-all" reimbursement strategy regardless of retirees' individual health care needs or local market efficiencies. This generally results in overspending by the employer and inefficient health care selections...

08/11/14 Aon Hewitt says proposed changes to accounting standards could wipe over £25 billion off FTSE 350 balance sheets
LONDON 11 August 2014 – Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE:AON) has said that proposed changes to pensions accounting standards, outlined by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) could take more than £25 billion off the balance sheets of FTSE 350 companies and £1 billion from their annual profits.

This would have a significant impact on balance sheet calculations.

Simon Robinson, principal consultant at Aon Hewitt, said;
"The big change being proposed is that in the future, when...
