well with the ACA about to open exchanges soon and have heard that some employers will no longer offer medical coverage as part of their compensation packages, I just wonder if those same employers are going to increase those employees salaries as a result of no longer having to provide them healthcare….

Employer offered insurance plan costs will also go down, because insurers would rather keep those accounts than lose them. This is a bullshit rumor - sure, some small employers may do this, but they won’t if they rely on their employees to make money for themselves.

And given that the Affordable Care Act will enable people who are afraid to leave their jobs because they don’t want to lose health care to do so and start their own companies, employers will actually have to offer better benefits to keep good talent.
