Reasons People Don't Have Health Insurance Coverage

You Lost Your Job And Are Unemployed Because Of Trade Policy

Next » « Previous


While it doesn't provide health coverage, the federal law known as The Trade Adjustment Assistance Reform Act pays 65% of the cost of health insurance for up to one year - and sometimes longer. The idea is to provide some compensation to individuals that are hurt because of the government's trade polilcy.

As a general matter, jobs lost to trade for purposes of the law includes:

  • Jobs lost because of Increases in imports which resulted in employer's products being replaced by products from other countries.
  • Your employer moved jobs out of the country.

The program coordinates with other government programs that may provide reemployment assistance, money if you take a job and earn less than your previous job, or help if you have a pension and are dealing with the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation.

Your state unemployment office should be able to tell you more about these programs.
