Today, nearly 180 million Americans receive their health coverage through their job. And across the country, tens of millions invest in supplemental coverage, like dental, vision, and disability income protection.


71% of Americans are satisfied with their current employer-provided coverage.


On average, employers pay 83% of the coverage costs for a single person, and 72% of the coverage costs for a family.


As policymakers consider the future of the health insurance market, let’s build on the strength, stability, and success of employer-provided coverage. Together, we can ensure that Americans have access to the affordable, high-quality care they deserve.


Participation in an employer-provided health plan gives Americans affordable access to many doctors and providers, comprehensive coverage and quality benefits – such as preventive care, technology solutions, prescription drugs and emergency care.
