WORK AND HEALTH INSURANCE FOR 50-to 64-YEAR OLDS [August 2014]
[full-text, 3 pages]
This report discusses the prevalence of employer-sponsored health coverage among 50- to 64-year-olds as of 2012-and looks at new options for coverage.
Working or having a family member connected to the work force is the way most 50-64 year olds obtain access to health insurance: nearly two-thirds had employer-sponsored health insurance in 2012.
But working is not a guarantee of employer-sponsored health insurance. Part-time workers and the self-employed are much less likely than full-time workers to have insurance through their employment. In fact, one in four workers in this age group lacked employer-sponsored health insurance in 2012.
