Hadn’t seen that before. But, for the reason above (and several more), it is striking how much business wants to continue to involve itself in the provision of health care insurance coverage. It feels like more of a “the way we’ve always done it” sort of conclusion as opposed to a distrust of government, taxes will increase argument. But health care expenditures go up, up, up and will continue to do so even with yesterday’s announcement.
Insurance coverage that follows people as they job hop/strike out on their own would boost American productivity. Short-term plans are annoying. COBRA too expensive. And individual insurance purchasing not rewarded by employers.
