Indirect Impacts of the Affordable Care Act: Retirement, Fertility, and Prison Recidivism
The papers in this session explore indirect impacts of the Affordable Care Act, beyond its direct impact on insurance coverage, access to care, and financial well-being. By providing new options for insurance coverage, the ACA could potentially have an impact on individual decisions regarding retirement. Insurance coverage could impact fertility decisions and fertility outcomes. In addition, availability of insurance coverage could affect outcomes for newly-released prisoners. This session evaluates all of these possible effects of the ACA.
