I see the group benefit costs to the company I run and every single year it increases by minimum 8% to 12%. We play with the deductibles, decrease some nice to have coverages and ensure a good, solid, meat and potatoes health care for the employee's while still accepting as much premium as we can spare and this is frankly not ideal, but the best course to take in the States.
This is so true. For years we paid for our employees medical coverage, but the costs got out of hand so we had no choice but to pass on the costs. That was tough, I thought we were going to have mutiny. No one appreciated all the years we did pay, or that fact that most other companies did not pay for their employees. We do contribute so the employee doesn't pay 100%. The yearly increases are staggering. We now offer a few different plans with different levels of coverage and deductibles so the employees can choose what works for them.

And - cmy - is it true that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
I thought I was a good person but the way I react when people drive slowly in the left lane would suggest otherwise
