Rising premiums have driven a steady decline in employer-sponsored health insurance since 2000, according to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation study released today. In 2011, the number of Americans with employer-sponsored insurance stood at 159 million, a decline of 11.5 million from 2000. The 2011 figure represented 59.5% of the U.S. population, a drop of 10 percentage points from a decade earlier.
