A McKinsey Quarterly report that found 30 percent of employers were likely or highly likely to stop offering health insurance after 2014

A McKinsey Quarterly report that found 30 percent of employers were likely or highly likely to stop offering health insurance after 2014 as a result of the health care reform law has continued to generate much follow-up discussion in the past three weeks. The debate over the results included sharply worded criticism from the White House, which led McKinsey to publish on its website follow-up information about the methodology of the survey. The McKinsey report, however, is just one of many that have examined the potential impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), with differing results, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation last week released studies that show employer coverage has eroded significantly in the past decade, from 69 percent in 2000 to 61 percent in 2009, but that the ACA is expected to help reverse the trend among small employers. An Urban Institute brief released last week anticipates that the ACA will have a similarly positive impact on small businesses and their workers.
