Trends in Employer Health Care Coverage, 2008–2018

Trends in Employer Health Care Coverage, 2008–2018

Jan 6, 2020, < 1 Minute Read

A recent Commonwealth Fund Report, that analyzes employer-sponsored health plans, provides insights that can help brokers answer clients’ questions about the ongoing trend in increased premiums, deductibles, and out-of-pocket spending.

An estimated 164 million under age 65, or roughly half the population of the United States have insurance through employers. “California workers went from spending 8% of their income on health insurance premiums and deductibles in 2008, about $4,100, to nearly 12% of their income on premiums and deductibles in 2018, about $6,900. That is a 68% jump in employees’ health care spending over the past decade — which far outpaces wage growth during the same period. Between 2008 and 2018, median household income in the state grew just 16%, from about $52,000 to $60,000, according to the report.” (San Francisco Chronicle article.)
