We used to have a group plan, but because nobody wanted to pay for insurance, we decided to drop it because it made the premiums for everyone else expensive. Now, we pay (I believe) either 60% or 65% of any plan that the employee acquires on their own. For most of our employees, it's a $20-$30 deduction per check (biweekly) for insurance - yet none of them want it.
Just baffles me.
Well, iirc, there was a poll showing something like 85% liking their health insurance plan. But we now have a nationally mandated plan in order to provide the rest with health insurance which will more likely wreck it for the 85% who are happy. The bankrupt the country some more, harm the economy too. Then the left calls that progress. It's insanity.
