      Some economists have proposed making the tax treatment of employer-provided health insurance the same as the tax treatment of individually purchased health insurance and out-of-pocket health care spending. Such changes would make it more likely that. ers would pay prices closer to the actual costs for routine medical care.   High income workers are much more likely to have access to health insurance at work and use it when they have it.
