The Implications of a Finding for the Plaintiffs in King v. Burwell for Small Employers, their Workers, and the Self-Employed

Testimony before United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship
April 29, 2015

Abstract

In this testimony before the U.S. Senate Small Business Committee, Linda Blumberg discussed the implications of a finding for the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell for small employers, their workers and the self-employed. Blumberg finds that because they disproportionately benefit from the changes brought to the nongroup insurance markets under the ACA, they would also be disproportionately harmed by the destabilization of these markets should the premium tax credits be eliminated.
