According to NewsRx.com, in terms of single coverage, only 35% of workers in 1998 were enrolled in the plans, but that rate fell to 24% by 2004, according to the agency, which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Enrollment in no-contribution family plans dropped from 19% to 15% during that same time period.
The agency found that workers at small companies – those with few than 50 workers – were far more likely that those at larger companies to be in non-contribution plans, with 53% of single-coverage workers enrolled at small firms compared to 14% at larger firms.
