Georgia Employer Survey

Bookmark and Share

The Georgia Health Policy Center released results from the 2011 Georgia Employer Survey showing that less than half of small firms (2 to 500 employees) in Georgia offer employer-sponsored coverage (ESI), and that the cost of individual coverage for workers grew by more than 60% from 2004 to 2011. The report also found small employers in south rural Georgia are significantly less likely to offer ESI to any workers than firms in the rest of the state (39 versus 47 percent).
