Through access to strong provider networks, comprehensive benefits, and quality services at an affordable cost, employer-provided coverage helps give hardworking Americans the peace of mind they deserve. Employers have a vested interest in the health and financial security of their employees. That’s why employer-provided coverage continues to be a bedrock of our entire health care system.

Another way that employers and health insurance providers are delivering health and financial security for employees is by offering supplemental coverage plans, which help cover expenses not covered by primary health insurance, such as accidents, specific diseases, or nonmedical expenses. Tens of millions of Americans invest in supplemental coverage, including disability income protection, long-term care insurance, dental, and vision coverage.
