ABSTRACT

Testimony on: Insurance Coverage and the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "Chairwoman Eshoo, Ranking Member Burgess, and members of the committee, thank you for the privilege of appearing today to discuss insurance coverage and the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. In this testimony, I hope to make three main points: [1] The enormous scale of job losses in the 2nd quarter of 2020 has raised the specter of widespread loss of employer-sponsored health insurance; [2] To date, however, there is no compelling evidence of a dramatic change in the fraction of the population without health insurance; and [3] To the extent that there is diminished employer-sponsored insurance, the marketplaces of the Affordable Care Act should be positioned to provide alternative coverage."
