Joel Cantor quoted in NJ Spotlight

Joel Cantor was quoted in NJ Spotlight: “New Jersey Businesses See Sharp Increase in Family Health-Insurance Premiums” offering a possible explanation for why the increase in employer-covered workers is occurring: Workers are choosing to accept employer coverage that they may have turned down previously because they were concerned with the ACA mandate that every American have health insurance or pay a penalty. “People have a preference for complying” with the law, Cantor said. Cantor also said that the margin of error in the survey might also have led it to overstate the size of the increase in family premiums, since it’s unlikely that the increase would be so different from the rise in single coverage.
