Supplementary notes

Previous years from KFF Employer Health Benefits Survey, 2018-2019; Kaiser/HRET Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Benefits, 2006-2017.
*In 2021, for specialist physician visits, 69% of employees had copayment, 22% coinsurance, 5% had no cost sharing, and 4% had other. Cost sharing includes copayment and coinsurance and is in addition to any general annual deductible.
Percentages less than 3 percent were calculated manually. Missing percentage points to 100 percent are probably due to rounding.
