Changes in Family Health Insurance Coverage for Small and Large Firm Workers and Dependents

This study examines the 1996-2006 Annual Demographic Survey of the Current Population Survey (CPS) to determine if the decline in health insurance coverage at large firms has increased financial pressure on plans sponsored by small firms. The study tests whether spouses working for large firms and children previously covered through large firms have shifted to dependent coverage in group plans sponsored by small businesses.
