Will employers continue to provide health insurance after ACA?

October 25, 2011

The Urban Institute released a report this month titled, Why Employers Will Continue to Provide Health Insurance: The Impact of the Affordable Care Act. The authors of the report utilized microsimulation models to analyze ways employers might react to health care reform. Based on the results of these complex simulations they predict that employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) will remain the preferred and primary source of coverage. The report states that ESI coverage won’t be significantly different under the ACA, and points out that ESI actually grew in Massachusetts after it enacted health care reform similar to the ACA.

For more information the report and summary are available in PDF format.
