According to this survey, by January 2002, one-third of working adults with employer-sponsored insurance were faced with higher deductibles or copayments or had their benefits reduced compared with the previous year. One of four workers had significantly higher premiums, while two of five had higher premium payments or increased cost-sharing. Low-income workers were the most likely to experience these reduced benefits and increased health care costs.
