Many Employers Likely to Drop Health Plans in 2014 (Mercer Survey)
MB analyzed the Obama-care bill prior to its passage and warned employers and employees (and anyone else who would listen) that the bill was cleverly designed to destroy employer-provided health insurance. All it takes to know that this bill will lead to a single-payer (government) program within the next two years
is to search the bill for one word ("employer") and one phrase (qualified plan). It does not take long to figure out that it is impossible for employers to maintain their plans in a "qualified" state. Any change to the plan disqualifies it and throws the plans participants into the government program. Raise premiums, disqualify your program. Lower premiums? Disqualified. Raise the deductible, disqualify your plan. Lower the deductible, same result.
