This analysis uses new questions in the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement to examine rates of offer and take-up of employer-sponsored health insurance over early 2014 and early 2015, as well as reasons reported for why individuals did not enroll.  We find increases in offer and eligible rates of 0.5 and 0.9 percentage points, respectively, and a decrease in the take-up rate of 1.5 percentage points, while the coverage rate remained stable.  We further find an increase in the proportion of workers covered by another plan and decreases in the proportions eligible for coverage but having a pre-existing condition, employed as contract or temporary employees not allowed in the plan, and who have not yet worked for an employer long enough.
