Kids at Risk: Declining Employer-Based Health Coverage in California and the United States
This report focuses on children’s healthcare coverage status, scrutinizing recent trends and modeling future patterns. The authors determine the indirect effects of skyrocketing premiums on children’s coverage status, breaking apart the results by income levels. The study then simulates trends through 2010, finding an increase in the number of uninsured children in both California and nationally. The authors close with the policy implications of their findings.
