Report: Mich. workers lost coverage at high rate in 2011 story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new report reveals that people in Michigan lost workplace health care coverage at a greater rate than any other state over the past decade.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that nearly 63 percent of Michigan residents received their insurance through a job in 2011.

That figure is actually down from 78 percent in the year 2000.

The foundation says that higher costs translate to fewer employers offering insurance coverage and fewer employees accepting it when it's offered.
