ASYMMETRIC EFFECTS OF MARITAL SEPARATION ON HEALTH INSURANCE AMONG MEN AND WOMEN
DAVID M. ZIMMER
"Despite widespread interest among policy researchers in the effect of job displacement on insurance loss, there is little focus in the literature on the insurance implications of a married person losing his or her spouse. Using a large household survey, this article finds that despite legislation aimed at protecting separating spouses, individuals remain at risk of losing health insurance in the event of marital disruption. This is especially true for wives who are enrolled in their husbands' plans prior to marital termination". ("JEL" D13, I18) Copyright 2006 Western Economic Association International.
