Employer-Based Benefits Steady In Obamacare’s Second Year

Urban Institute researchers have published new research supporting the thesis that Obamacare has not harmed either offers or uptake of employer-based health benefits:


  • Employer-sponsored insurance coverage, offer, and take-up rates remained unchanged among nonelderly workers from June 2013 through March 2015.
  • Coverage, offer, and take-up rates were stable for workers in both small and large firms as well as for workers with higher and lower incomes.
  • Employer-sponsored insurance coverage also remained unchanged among all nonelderly adults from June 2013 through March 2015.

This corroborates the case I recently made, although there is contrary evidence.
