Employer-based health coverage on the decline, study finds
The Hill

The number of people who receive healthcare coverage through their work has dropped sharply over the last ten years as costs have risen, according to a new study. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) reported Thursday that the share of people with employer-based coverage fell from about 70 percent in 2000 to about 60 percent in 2011. These figures mean that about 11.5 million people who once received health insurance through their jobs no longer do.
