The 2008 Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey
Publication Date: June 1905
Publisher(s): Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation
Coverage: United States
This annual survey of employers provides a detailed look at trends in employer-sponsored health coverage, including changes in premiums, employee contributions, cost-sharing provisions, and other relevant information.
The survey continued to document the prevalence of high-deductible health plans associated with a savings option, including the percentage of employers offering these plan types and the percentage of workers covered by them. The 2007 survey included 3,078 randomly selected public and private firms with three or more employees (1,997 of which responded to the full survey and 1,081 of which responded to an additional question about offering coverage). Researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation, the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, and Health Research and Educational Trust designed and analyzed the survey.
