Effects of Employer-Provided Health Insurance on Disability Insurance Claiming
RAND Corporation Link to more items from this source
May 22, 2014
"[E]mployer-provided insurance has a strong influence on a certain type of newly disabled worker -- those who largely retain their physical functional capacity and whose disability is expected to have high medical costs, such as cancer. These workers are 23 percent more likely to continue to work in the years immediately following disability onset ... if they rely on their employer for health insurance than are those with the option of obtaining health insurance through a spouse. Workers with these types of health problems represent 20 percent of newly disabled workers aged 51 or older."
