Report: Fewer Virginians Getting Insurance Through Employer



April 11, 2013

A new report shows fewer Virginians are getting health insurance through their employer.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report says, 66% of Virginia residents got their insurance through a job in 2011.

That's down from 75% in 2000.

Researchers say, factors like decreases in overall employment and rising premium costs contributed to the decline.
