As required by Engrossed Substitute House Bill 3079

Nationally, an increasing number of employers faced with rising employee health care premium costs either have chosen to drop health care benefits for their employees or to pass on to their employees a greater share of coverage costs. As a consequence, more employees and their dependents either go without health insurance, apply for state purchased health care programs supported with public funds, or seek uncompensated care at hospitals and community clinics. This report provides aggregate and employer-specific data related to employed DSHS Medical Assistance clients and non-client parents with dependents with DSHS medical coverage. Employers are ranked by firm (high to low) by number of DSHS Medical Clients. NOTE: Abridged versions of this report contain detail for "top Ten" firms only. The 2006 report was revised November 2007 to correct an error in the original report.
