State strategies for addressing post-employment benefit liabilities vary greatly, and the methods states choose to contribute to their retirees’ health insurance premiums substantially affect those liabilities, according to a report issued as part of the State Health Care Spending Project, an initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts and MacArthur. The report is the first of its kind to provide data about the cost in today’s dollars of benefits to be paid to current workers and retirees over future years. It is intended to help states better understand how their spending, long-term liabilities, and criteria for premium contributions and coverage eligibility compare with those of other states. View key trends from across all the project's reports.
