Washington D.C. Joint Conference

Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance: Research to Inform the Future

December 6, 2002
Washington, D.C.

This conference, jointly sponsored with The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and The Commonwealth Fund, brought together Congressional staff, public and private sector policy experts, journalists, and health policy researchers to discuss emerging trends in employment-based coverage. The discussion focused on understanding the factors influencing employer and worker decisions about health insurance and the implications for coverage policies such as tax credits, expansions of public programs, and high-deductible "consumer-driven" health plans.
