Health Benefits: Providing Value for Our Employees

March 7, 2017

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. 


Brian Moynihan

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bank of America
