More than half of all Americans receive their health insurance through work. However, research from West Health and Gallup finds that employer-sponsored insurance isn’t working — for businesses and workers alike. Over the past two decades, employer-sponsored health insurance premiums and deductibles have continued to increase. These rising costs impact business competitiveness and stretch household budgets. The more businesses spend on employee health insurance, the less is left over for wages, investments and other business expenses. And while employers bear the brunt of the expenses, millions of Americans with employer-sponsored insurance still have difficulty affording healthcare expenses.

Join West Health, Gallup, Small Business Majority CEO John Arensmeyer and other experts for a discussion on the future of employer-sponsored insurance, including:

  • How rising healthcare costs affect business decisions for large and small businesses
  • The impact of high-cost care on American workers
  • What business owners and the public view as possible solutions
