The Health and Wealth of a Nation: Employer-Based Health Insurance and the Affordable Care Act


  • Nan L. Maxwell

    (Mathematica Policy Research)


This research examines the behaviors of firms with respect to their provision of health care prior to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) deliberations and uses those behaviors to forecast changes in employer-sponsored health insurance that might occur once the ACA is fully implemented. Addonizio and Kearney assess the success of a number of innovative educational reforms.
