Abstract: The objectives of this study were to describe and understand employers' and employees' behavior with respect to employment-based health insurance, to track trends in health insurance provided by employers, and to evaluate selected policies to regulate or expand employment-based health insurance coverage. Sampling was designed to permit estimates for selected communities that are part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Community Tracking Study (CTS) and for selected states of interest to the RWJF State Initiatives in Health Care Reform Program. Data were collected on employers' offers of health insurance coverage, employees' eligibility and enrollment in health plans, and, for each plan offered, the plan type (HMO, POS, PPO, conventional), premiums (employer and employee contributions), benefits, cost-sharing, and employer self-insurance status. The study also collected information on the characteristics of employers and workers, including the number of employees at the establishment, the number of employees statewide and nationwide, and the distribution of workers by hours worked, age, sex, and earnings.
