Recommendations to preserve employer-sponsored insurance

By Admin | September 18, 2017

In an opinion piece written for, contributing columnist James Gelfand outlines his reasons to protect the employer-sponsored health insurance system.

Gelfand cites that employer-sponsored insurance is the largest source of coverage in the country, giving 178 million people coverage.

The ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC) along with other organizations sent a letter to Congress with policy recommendations that would protect employer-sponsored health care while the market stabilizes.

Those recommendations include:

  • Funding CSR payments to improve affordability in the individual market
  • Repealing the Cadillac tax, which has already been delayed until 2020
  • Updating consumer-directed health options like Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • And explore value-based healthcare options
