washington dc – At a virtual event announced today, the Protecting Americans’ Coverage Together (PACT) campaign highlighted new findings on the value and importance of employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI).

PACT is a campaign representing America’s leading employers focused on strengthening ESI systems and protecting the coverage and benefits families rely on for their health and wellbeing. Its members include the American Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable, National Association of Manufacturers, Affordable Health Coverage Council, and Vermeer Corporation.

In support of the PACT campaign, the US Chamber of Commerce recently asked Avalere Health to estimate the return on investment (ROI) that ESI will provide employers with 100 or more employees. The report found that employers with more than 100 employees who provide their employees with her ESI saw her ROI increase by 47%. Avalere points to the importance of quality coverage and finds that employers who invest heavily in health insurance get the most benefit from their investment.

ESI serves as the backbone of America’s healthcare system and is essential to ensuring a healthy workforce. In a discussion released today, PACT members explored employee productivity, quality of care, retention, recruitment, and the overall value created by her ESI for both employers and employees.
