- Innovative delivery system models
Approximately 181 million Americans have health, retirement and other valuable benefits provided by their employer under a uniform national framework established by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). America’s employers believe that as Congress considers changes to the U.S. health care delivery system, care should be taken to preserve ERISA – the framework for the health care coverage on which millions of Americans depend.
Protect health benefits for more than 181 million Americans.
