ABSTRACT

ACA Offers Protection as the COVID-19 Pandemic Erodes Employer Health Insurance Coverage   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic presents the first major test of how well the Affordable Care Act (ACA) can protect people's health insurance coverage during a recession, as job losses threaten employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI). According to newly available data from the Urban Institute's Coronavirus Tracking Survey, 3.1 million adults lost ESI between March/April and September 2020, but most of them retained some form of insurance with the ACA in place. However, the 'California v. Texas' lawsuit the Supreme Court will hear on November 10, 2020, could put the protections offered by the ACA at risk."
