On January 20, 2011, Elise Gould, EPI’s Director of Health Policy Research, gave a presentation (attached below) at the National Congress on Health Insurance Reform, examining the future of employer-based health insurance in the wake of health care reform. Although employer-sponsored health insurance has long been the principal source of health insurance, the share of Americans who have employer-sponsored health insurance has been falling for years.  In a 2010 Briefing Paper Gould showed that the share of Americans under age 65 that is covered by employer-based health insurance fell to 58.9% in 2009, from 61.9% in 2008, representing the ninth straight year of erosion.
