New Reports Analyze Latest Data on Health Coverage, Examine the Decline in Employer-Sponsored Coverage

Several reports examining the latest health coverage trends and profiling the nation’s uninsured population were released at a Capitol Hill briefing. One report finds that despite the improving economy, the percentage of the population with employer-sponsored insurance continued to decline while the number of the uninsured continued to increase. A second report determines that nearly three-fourths of the decline in employer coverage was due to a loss in employer sponsorship or eligibility for coverage.
