McKinsey Official Involved with Contradictory Studies on Affordable Care Act

The consulting firm McKinsey and Company recently released a study finding that “larger numbers of employers plan to drop insurance for workers because of the Affordable Care Act.” However, Bowen Garrett, the chief economist of McKinsey and Company’s Center for U.S. Health System Reform, previously authored a study for the Urban Institute finding that the Affordable Care Act will not lead large numbers of employers to drop health insurance coverage. He asserts that claims of a large-scale decline in health insurance offered by employers are “greatly exaggerated,” directly contradicting the more recent McKinsey study.
