Kaiser Family Foundation/LA Times Survey Of Adults With Employer-Sponsored Insurance

The Survey Of Adults With Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance – the first partnership project conducted jointly by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Los Angeles Times – explores the attitudes and experiences of adults with employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI), including views of their health plans and affordability challenges related to premiums, deductibles, and unexpected medical bills. The survey takes a special look at those in high deductible plans (including those paired with a health savings account or HSA), those with chronic health conditions, and those with lower incomes. It also examines factors related to health plan decision-making and cost-conscious health care shopping behaviors, as well as overall views of the U.S. health care system.
