Employer-Provided Insurance Coverage

Definition

Percentage of the non-elderly (under 65) population covered by employer-based health plans, 2010.

Description

The majority of Americans receive health care coverage in the workplace through their employers. Examining the share of workers who are covered by employer-sponsored health insurance is a good measure of the extent to which a state’s households are protected with health insurance. For families without health coverage, particularly the low-income population, major medical expenses paid for through credit cards or other forms of debt is a leading cause of bankruptcy.
