Shocker! Companies Drop Insurance, Say “Have Fun With The Government”

This is just for MassCare. Imagine this on a national level, with the bonus kicker at the end of the first paragraph

The relentlessly rising cost of health insurance is prompting some small Massachusetts companies to drop coverage for their workers and encourage them to sign up for state-subsidized care instead, a trend that, some analysts say, could eventually weigh heavily on the state’s already-stressed budget.

But, but, but, that will never happen with ObamaCare, right? Of course, getting companies to drop their health insurance offerings one way or another is exactly what the Dems want, though, somehow, they believe that there will be no monetary problems. Can you say “clueless morons”?

“Those employers are trying to keep their doors open, and to the extent they can cut expenses, they will cut health insurance because they know their people can go to Commonwealth Care,’’ said Mark Gaunya, president of the Massachusetts Association of Health Underwriters, a trade group representing more than 1,000 brokers and other insurance professionals.

Exactly what will happen on a national level. ObamaCare does nothing to reduce or even moderate rising costs: as a matter of fact, the legislation could increase costs, so, companies will dump their offerings to save the money. The fines are cheaper than paying for insurance.

    “the state’s already-stressed budget” – I wonder which state does not have a stressed budget ever…
    Anyway, you’re right that sometimes the fines are just cheaper to pay than to actually comply with the new law. The whole idea is interesting though – I once had the luck to attend a lesson by a US government research team asserting that the more an insurance company knows about you, the smaller your flexibility in your coverage and payment. In an extreme case, if an insurance company knew everything about you, you would almost be better off paying for your health care from your own pocket. Interesting food for thought, huh?
