As many as 900,000 people across the country may leave their jobs now that the Affordable Care Act provides health insurance alternatives, according to Craig Garthwaite, PhD. In an interview with Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar Chileshe Nkonde-Price, MD, Garthwaite uses an analysis of the Tennessee Public Health Insurance Program to explain why a significant number of American workers may not feel the need to stay with their current employers as subsidized health insurance becomes available through health insurance exchanges.
Garthwaite is assistant professor of management and strategy at the Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management. The interview is part of a series of RWJF Clinical Scholars Health Policy Podcasts, co-produced with Penn’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics.
