|The Incidence of the Healthcare Costs of Obesity|
National Bureau of Economic Research [NBER]
May 11, 2005
Excerpt: In this paper, we examine the incidence of the healthcare costs of obesity among full time workers. We find that the incremental healthcare costs associated with obesity are passed on to obese workers with employer-sponsored health insurance in the form of lower cash wages. Obese workers in firms without employer-sponsored insurance do not have a wage offset relative to their non-obese counterparts.
