Even modest migration from employer-sponsored healthcare plans to the individual market may have a significant effect on public health exchange premiums.

In 2014, over 156 million people received healthcare coverage through employer-sponsored health insurance. With the size of this market, even modest migration from employer-sponsored plans to the individual market could have a major effect on public health exchange premiums. In this client report, we discuss the potential factors that could contribute to a shift from employer-sponsored plans to the individual health insurance market in the coming years.

This client report was commissioned by the American Health Policy Institute.
