Poll: Fewer insured through work - Print View

Fewer Americans are getting health insurance from their employer, a continuation of a trend that started in 2008, according to a Gallup Poll out Thursday. Only 55.9 percent of adults aged 26 to 64 received employer-provided health insurance in 2012, down from 61.6 percent in 2008. …. “It is clear … that one part of the [Affordable Care Act supported by Democrats and the president] — the piece allowing those up to age 26 to stay on their parents’ plans — has already had a significant effect. More 18- to 25-year-olds have gained health insurance — and through an employer in particular,” reports the polling firm.
