  1. The effect of employment status on private health insurance coverage : 1977 and 1987.

    Article - En anglais

    Traduction en français : L'influence du statut professionnel sur la couverture par l'assurance maladie privée : 1977 et 1987.

    Analyzing cross-sectional data from the National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES), we find that the predicted probability of private insurance coverage for low-income individuals as a group fell dramatically from 1977 to 1987.

    The results of a decompositional technique show that the relationship between full-time employment and private insurance has weakened over the period for low-income females, but has strenghened for males in this group.

    While it appears that low-income females benefit from part-time employment relative to their unemployed cohorts, no discernible difference is found in the likehood of being covered by private insurance for part-time and unemployed males.

    Finally, evidence suggesting a weakening over time in the relationship between part-time employment and private insurance coverage is found among middle-income females and high-income males.

    From a policy perspective, passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 has taken an important first step in attempting to lower the number of uninsured, especially among full-time workers.

    Our findings, however, suggest that this legislation may be too limitad in scope to effectively reach part-time workers presently uinsured.
