Nearly one in 10 companies say they'll stop providing health coverage in 2014.

That's when the feds will begin offering insurance exchanges subsidized by the government under the health care overhaul.

A survey by the research firm Towers Watson found some companies think they'll be better off paying fines and taxes than offering coverage.

Towers Watson says it's possible these companies will change their minds as we get closer to 2014.
