C-FARE-NCRCRD Webinar: Health Insurance in the Agricultural Sector

December 11 at 12 PM ET

The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act altered incentives for how individuals and employers engage in the health care market. Two researchers will discuss how health insurance availability and coverage impacts farm households and  farmer, rancher, extension workers, and technical assistant decisions. Participants will hear how health insurance influences farmers’ decisions to invest, expand and grow their enterprises; contributes to workforce vitality; and impacts farm enterprises given insurance market variability across states. Some review of the impact of the law on the structure of agriculture will be discussed. This is an interactive webinar so participants will be able to raise issues and ask questions.
