Effect of State Health Insurance Mandates on Employer-provided Health Insurance
We determine the impact of the change in the number of state health insurance mandates from 2004 to 2006 on the probability that an individual has employer-provided health insurance (EPHI). We hypothesize that increasing the number of mandates will decrease the probability that an individual has EPHI. Using the within-state variation of the number of mandates, we show that each additional mandate causes approximately a 0.2 percentage point decrease in the probability that an individual has EPHI. Importantly, using a two-stage least squares model, we are able to clearly demonstrate that these results are not biased by endogeneity.
