Recent Trends in Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance: Are Bad Jobs Getting Worse?

Publication Abstract

Farber, Henry S., and Helen Levy. 2000. "Recent Trends in Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance: Are Bad Jobs Getting Worse?" Journal of Health Economics, 19(1): 93-119.

We examine whether the decline in the availability of employer-provided health insurance is a phenomenon common to all jobs or is concentrated only on certain jobs. We find that declines in own-employer insurance coverage over the 1988–1997 period are driven primarily by declines in takeup for long-term full-time workers and declines in eligibility for new and part-time workers. We also look at trends by workers' education level, and see how much of the decline in is offset by an increase in coverage through a spouse's policy.
