Codes and Frequencies
For persons in families with private insurance, HIP1WORK indicates whether the first insurance plan reported was originally obtained through work (i.e., through a present or former employer or union).
Insurance "through" an employer refers to employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) plans that are offered as a benefit of employment. Employers generally contribute to monthly plan premiums, which lowers the cost for the individual. Employer-sponsored coverage is often much more affordable than plans bought directly by an individual.
