EBRI: Job-Based Benefits Increased in 2000

NU Online News Service, Nov. 28, 9:33 a.m. – Employment-based health insurance expanded in 2000, even though health insurance costs increased much more rapidly than the overall rate of inflation, according to analysts at the Employee Benefit Research Institute, Washington.

Recently released 2000 labor market census figures show little evidence of employers shifting health insurance costs onto workers, the analysts write in a new EBRI research note.

This year, the recent economic slowdown and rapidly rising health benefit costs may be forcing employers to drop coverage in some cases and shift costs in others, the analysts warn.
