Description:
   This Statistical Brief reports estimates by state of the percentage of private-sector employees enrolled in employer-sponsored health insurance plans with high premiums, defined as those with annual premiums that were greater than or equal to the 90th percentile for single-coverage enrollees ($8,500) or family coverage enrollees ($24,000) in 2016. That is, of all enrollees across the U.S. within each coverage type, 10 percent had premiums at or above these amounts. These estimates were obtained using data from the 2016 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey-Insurance Component (MEPS-IC).
