QM010 - How We Got Employer Healthcare

Open in playerListen on);
An audio newsletter taking a closer look at how money works and how it affects the world around us.

Hi All,

Today’s newsletter issue is about how we got the employer-sponsored healthcare system that we have today. It’s interesting - we debate the concepts of private vs public health insurance, but private health insurance today is nothing like other types of insurance, such as auto insurance. How did our healthcare system become so intertwined with employment in the first place?
