Employment-Based Health Coverage Holds Steady

Sixty-two percent of the non-elderly population had employment-based health overage in 2014, which is the same as in 2013, according to the Census Bureau. The percentage of non-elderly people in the United States with health insurance increased from 2013 (84.6%) to 2014 (88%). The percentage of uninsured when down from 2013 (15.4%) to 2014 (12%). Just over 32 million were uninsured in 2014, down from 41.1 million in 2013. The increase in health coverage among the entire non-elderly population came from growth among people buying health insurance directly from an insurance carrier (up from 8.8% in 2013 to 12.6% in 2014) and from enrollment in public programs (up from 19.3% in 2013 to 21.7% in 2014).

Employment-based Health Coverage Holds Steady

Although health insurance coverage rates are rising, the percentage of Americans with employment-based coverage remains unchanged, according to a report by the Employee Benefits Research Institute (EBRI). In 2014, 88% of non-elderly people people were covered, up from 84.6% in 2013. Twelve percent of people under 65 were uninsured in 2014, down from 15% in 2013. Among the entire population, 13% had individual coverage in 2014 compared to 9% in 2013. There was no change in the percentage of the non-elderly population with coverage through an employment-based health plan. More people were covered by employment-based coverage in 2014 than in 2013 because of population growth, but the percentage with employment-based health coverage was unchanged at 62%.
