Selected Medical Benefits: A Report

This April 2011 report from the Labor Department tabulates information from the BLS National Compensation Survey to help HHS determine what constituted an “essential benefit,” and examines data for 12 additional services for which HHS requested information on coverage and cost sharing. The study mainly looked at large employer benefits. The additional services were: emergency room visits, ambulance services, diabetes care management, kidney dialysis, physical therapy, durable medical equipment, prosthetics, maternity care, infertility treatment, sterilization, gynecological exams and services, and organ and tissue transplantation.
