Access to healthcare remains to be a critical element in employment of persons with disabilities. Utilizing nationally existing restricted-access secondary data sets, we observed that access to employer-paid health insurance reduced job-mobility among employees with disabilities and led to longer work-tenure. This research demonstrates the value of offering health insurance in retaining qualified employees with disabilities. The findings of the Cornell research, in light of upcoming changes in health insurance policies as a result of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, are discussed.
