New research from the Urban Institute estimates that the number of self-employed Americans will be 1.5 million higher in 2014 because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Researchers expect more people to pursue their own businesses due to subsidized insurance coverage no longer being exclusively tied to employment, eliminating a source of “job lock,” in which people feel tied to their jobs and unable to leave.
