NU Online News Service, Jan. 20, 3:21 p.m. – U.S. workers may be a little happier with employer-sponsored health plans than they were four years ago, according to results of a new survey from Harris Interactive Inc., Rochester, N.Y.

When Harris researchers surveyed 949 U.S. insured adults in December 2002, they found that 68% gave employer-sponsored plans and union-sponsored plans a grade of A or B, down slightly from 69% in 1999. The percentage who gave work-related plans a grade of D or F increased to 13%, from 7%.

But survey participants seemed to be more confident that work-related plans would come through when subscribers need help the most.

Thirty-eight percent told researchers they would “definitely recommend” work-related plans to friends or relatives battling serious or chronic health problems, up from 24% in 1999.
