Pennsylvania employer-provided health insurance drops

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, October 14, 2008

Pennsylvania is among the leaders in the percentage of employers providing healthcare coverage, but it is losing that advantage. A new report by the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, DC, says 70.2% of Pennsylvanians had employer-provided coverage in 2006-07, down 5.7 percentage points from six years ago. That compares with a 4.7 percentage point average decline nationally.
