Among eligible part-time workers, fewer elect health care benefits at large companies in comparison to full-time employees, according to the 2012 Study of Large Employer Health Benefits by ADP.

While 88 percent of full-time respondents are eligible for benefits, 77 percent enroll for health coverage. Thus, 67 percent of the total full-time work force is covered.

Part-time respondents make up 23 percent of the total work force, and only 53 percent of those respondents elect employer health care coverage. Based on this figure, part-time respondents represent less than 5 percent of employees enrolled in employer health care coverage.
