From Medcompare:
Men with employment-contingent health insurance (ECHI) who suffer a health shock, such as a cancer diagnosis or hospitalization, are more likely to feel "locked" into remaining at work and are at greater risk for losing their insurance during this critical time as compared to men who are on their spouse's insurance plan or on private insurance plans, according to a new study by Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center… Collaborators on this study were David Neumark, Ph.D., professor of economics, director of graduate studies, director for The Center of Economics and Public Policy at the University of California, Irvine, and Meryl Motika, doctoral student at the University of California, Irvine.
