The Urban Institute last week released its analysis of the Massachusetts health reform's impact on employment. The group found that economic growth was stronger in Massachusetts relative to the rest of the county after the reforms were instituted, and that employer-sponsored insurance rates actually grew. The report concludes, "Given the similarities between Massachusetts' health reform and the ACA, we would expect the experience in Massachusetts to be broadly predictive of the effects of national reform. However, the impacts of the ACA will vary from those in Massachusetts given the many elements of national reform that differ from reform in Massachusetts, including key aspects of the requirements for employers, and the different circumstances of each state."
