Employers Offering ‘Skinny’ Coverage to Side-Step Obamacare Fines

"Some employers are avoiding Obamacare penalties by offering “skinny” insurance plans that provide workers with minimum coverage like preventive care but little else, including benefits to help cover hospitals stays.

The minimum coverage qualifies as acceptable under the new healthcare reform law, so benefit advisers and insurance brokers are pitching minimum plans nationally, reports the Wall Street Journal."     [BIG HEALTH]

clipper saysHERE is the idiotic result of the Health Care Central planning and the arrogance of bureaucrats who believe that some small number of Washington minions can define, describe and regulate something that works for everyone:
“We wouldn’t have anticipated that there’d be demand for these type of Band-Aid plans in 2014,” the Journal quotes former White House health adviser Robert Kocher. “Our expectation was that employers would offer high-quality insurance.”       [NY POST]
