Employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) has long been the most common source of health coverage in the United States and provides flexible, high-quality coverage for workers at a better value for taxpayers and the federal government than public alternatives. In 2021, 58 percent of all non-elderly Americans received health insurance through their employer, though in 2000, this number was nearly 70 percent.

Key topics:

  • Should health insurance be decoupled from employment?
  • Even as government health coverage has expanded, why is ESI still the preferred source of coverage?
  • Are there practical ESI reform opportunities?
