Reforming Tax Expenditures for Health Care

Abstract

This brief examines major tax expenditures for health care under current law and analyzes three potential reforms to the tax exclusion for employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI) premiums. We use the Tax Policy Center microsimulation model’s revamped health module as well as health insurance coverage simulations from the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Simulation Model (HIPSM).
