Two New Reports To Be Released Tuesday Show Employer Health Mandate Would Help Save Jobs, Details How To Structure A "Play-or-Pay" System

WASHINGTON, June 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of economists will declare that a bad economy should not delay overhauling the nation's health care system, and health care experts will release two new reports detailing an essential employer health mandate on a conference call with reporters on Tuesday.

Economist Jonathan Gruber will release a statement calling for universal coverage signed by 287 economists and health experts on the call. Health care experts Jacob Hacker, Ken Jacobs, and Phillip Cryan will also be on the call to release two new reports. Cryan's report, published by the Institute for America's Future and the Economic Policy Institute, shows that an employer contribution to health care leads to job gains. And Hacker and Jacobs' report for the U.C. Berkeley School of Law Center on Health, Economic and Family Security and Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education details how to structure a "play-or-pay" requirement on employers.
