Dear business leaders and stakeholders:
I am pleased to share with you a new report highlighting what leading U.S. companies are doing to improve health outcomes for our employees and their families.
America's employer-sponsored health benefits system is the foundation of health care in the United States. Of the 209 million Americans who are covered by health insurance plans, 85 percent — or 177 million Americans* — receive health coverage through an employer.
This report demonstrates many different ways employers are helping to drive a health care system that delivers better health care quality and value.
I hope you find this report helpful.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Bank of America
