Health Insurers Embrace Vaccine Requirements for Workers

Although the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates are meeting resistance in the federal courts, many health care firms — including insurers — appear to be requiring their employees to get COVID-19 vaccinations anyway.

In a newly released survey from Willis Towers Watson, 47% of health care organizations polled said they had a vaccine requirement in place already, compared to just 18% of employers overall. On the flip side, 15% of health care companies said they were not planning to adopt a vaccine mandate, while 33% of employers overall said the same.
