ERISA Regulation of Health Plans: Fact Sheet

ERISA Regulation of Health Plans: Fact Sheet

Date: August 18, 2001
Creator: Chaikind, Hinda Ripps
Description: The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA, P.L. 93-406) places the regulation of employee benefit plans (including health plans) primarily under federal jurisdiction for about 124 million people. ERISA’s treatment of health plans is both complicated and confusing. ERISA has been interpreted as dividing health plans into two groups regulated differently under the law: about 54 million people are covered by self-insured plans for which the employer, rather than an insurer, assumes the risk for paying for covered services and about 70 million people are covered by purchased insurance (according to 2000 information from the Census Bureau and the Department of Labor).

Health Care Reform: An Introduction

Date: August 31, 2009
Creator: Fernandez, Bernadette; Chaikind, Hinda; Peterson, Chris L. & Bob Lyke
Description: This report provides an introduction to health care reform. It focuses on three predominant concerns--coverage, cost and spending, and quality--and some of the legislative issues within which they likely will be debated, including the scope of reform (particularly whether Medicare and Medicaid should be included); the choice between public and private coverage; whether employment-based insurance should be strengthened, weakened, or left alone; and what role states might play.
