The $125 billion question: How will the ACA affect cancer survivors?
Date:1/23/2014

s are impacting breast and cervical cancer screening among low-income women around the country. "The results," she says, "will help us develop strategies to reach the under-screened populations, which is critical for health care providers in reducing inequalities in cancer care and outcomes across socioeconomic and racial groups."

The ACA's impact on the working cancer survivor

Cancer patients often experience fear of losing their health insurance if they cannot continue to work after diagnosis. Cathy Bradley, Ph.D., M.P.A, co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control research program at Massey, has focused her studies on the implications of the ACA on Americans dependent on employer-sponsored health insurance after experiencing a health shock, like cancer. Bradley studied employed married women newly diagnosed with breast cancer and compared the hours worked between those who were dependent on their own employment for health insurance and those with access to their spouse's insurance.

"Our findings show that breast cancer survivors who are dependent on employer-sponsored health insurance had a greater incentive to uphold a higher labor supply in order to maintain access to coverage. But with the ACA, cancer patients will no longer have to worry about losing their health insurance if they can no longer work. The law will give patients access to private health insurance outside of the employer-based system, which will have a positive impact on the working cancer survivor," says Bradley, principal investigator of the NCI-funded study.

And although Bradley states that having private health insurance outside of the workplace will not incentivize cancer patients to stop working, if they do choose to stop working or if they have to, it will allow them to devote their time to treatment and recovery.
