Health­care hir­ing re­bounded by 19,500 jobs last month, a big lift over March.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The April in­crease sur­passed a dis­ap­point­ing 13,300 gain in March that an­a­lysts felt had been damp­ened by con­gres­sional ef­forts to re­peal and re­place the Af­ford­able Care Act. The sec­tor shook off those doubts in April, need­ing work­ers es­pe­cially in out­pa­tient set­tings. A Jan­uary re­port by the Com­mon­wealth Fund found that re­peal­ing key pro­vi­sions of the ACA, in­clud­ing the in­sur­ance pre­mium tax cred­its and Med­i­caid ex­pan­sion, could lead to 2.6 mil­lion peo­ple los­ing their jobs in 2019.
