UPS DRopping Spouses From Insurance Coverage, Cites "Obamacare"

UPS to drop 15,000 spouses from health insurance, cites Obamacare

United Parcel Service plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based shipping and logistics company points to the federal Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News. According to Kaiser, UPS told white-collar workers two months ago that 15,000 working spouses eligible for coverage by their own employers would be excluded from the UPS plan in 2014.

Employers are going to stop offering health care benefits ostensibly 'cos Obamaocare is going to cover them, except for one thing, Obamaocare is a Potemkin Village.

Alot of people are going to be in a no mans land in a year or so.

You'll see.
I'm not going to lie to ya. I had to look up Potemkin Village.

UPS is a very reactionary entity. 2012 was a pretty flat year in terms of profits for the company (in spite of the fact that they have earned record profits each quarter for a significant time now), and that undoubtedly led to this decision with the insurance. 2013 has been an entirely different story with impressive profits thus far. Basically UPS is obsessed with the bottom line, as are most major corporations, so you get moves like these. Not real tactful, but it does save them money.

DISCLAIMER - Before Crapski poops his diaper, this is NOT a defense of Obamacare in any way, shape, or form.

Isn't Obamacare all about spreading ridiculous medical expenses over as many people as possible?

Let's not investigate hospital/doctor charges that are outrageous. We need to feed the monster with more "participants" who can't afford it.

Obamaocare is ersatz. It's BS. It was never intended or implemented to actually provide health care or health insurance. It's sole purpose was/is to tax more money out of the private sector so the federal government can piss it away.

It's looting. That's all it is.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/100982092?__s...Obamacare%20ma
So how does paying more money to private insurance companies equal looting to the government?

You been hanging out with CP's other shittiest parent ever (livesteam)? How many days have you been up now? 2?3?

I think UPS ****ing sucks. I remember as a kid that they only hired part-time employees on the loading docks because they didn't want to pay for health insurance for full-timers.

I got a part time job at Deluxe Checks (which paid $7 per hour) and one of the guys there worked at UPS part time, also, which paid $8 dollars an hour. So between the two jobs, he had 40 hours a week of work but no benefits.

UPS paid overtime during the holiday season but never gave benefits of any kind unless you were a driver or worked in corporate.




Nah. Children are covered. Husband/Wife is covered if they don't have a job. Nothing to quit over.
They've given benefits (medical/dental/vision) to part-timers for quite a while now.

But you have to gain seniority first.

I guess self+kids is the new family plan. I am given several options. Self, self+spouse, Self+kids, kids, family.
