The Employee Benefits Survey from the Bureau of Labor Statistics provides annual data on the percent of workers with employment-based health care benefits as well as extensive details on plan features. From this data citizens can know the annual deductible amounts imposed by plans, how such deductibles vary between in-network and out-of-network providers, whether other plans cover the same services that your plan covers, and if the copayment you owe for a doctor’s visit is similar to what others pay.
You can find information on the Employee Benefits Survey on the Web at http://www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/ or search for “Employee Benefits Survey” in healthdata.gov. Below are links to three specific tables of the survey data:
