According to this comprehensive literature review some specific groups benefit more than others from access to health insurance. In particular, health insurance does have important and broad positive effects for low-income children and vulnerable adults. Etienne Gaudette and his colleagues Gwyn Pauley and Julie Zissimopoulos reviewed and synthesized over studies that examined the effects of health insurance on individuals in early and mid-life i.

If these developments cause employees with employer-provided health insurance to feel locked into their jobs, optimal job matches in the labor force may not take place. A summary of the seminal papers in the current literature on the topic of job lock is given, followed by an empirical exercise using single individuals from the National Health Interview Survey and the cohort of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth Econometric methods used include difference in differences, ordinary least squares and individual fixed effects models, in gauging the potential effect that employer-provided health insurance may have on job tenure and voluntary job departure.
