Assurant Health to eliminate 130 jobs

Health insurance that cost more with fewer options..Was that the "Hope and Change" you were looking for? When you all get the new conditions of your health insurance and you have higher premiums, co-pays, and less services..post it here..maybe we can educate a few who haven't got it yet..thought we were getting better and cheaper health care?..and thanks Dems for costing 130 more people their jobs...

THE CO-PAY WE HAVE WENT FROM FIVE THOUSAND A PERSON TO TEN THOUSAND A PERSON on August 1st...instead of co-pay for two it now would be for three family members...the insurance arrangement is supposed to be from January 1st to December 31st..the last two years they have changed it on August 1st doubling the co-pay each time..making the arrangement six months instead of a full year...the premium amount taken from the paycheck increases with every new "plan"...in my forty plus years of having health insurance this had never happened until this current group of"leaders" were elected..no imagination in that...

Health care costs less now, so insurance companies need fewer employees.

The Blame Game

I have to give a standing ovation to "The Blame Game" for his consistent, high level, and never failed comments. One might think that after any previous comments that would be impossible for someone with a fully functioning brain, TBG comes up with new materials that would make someone with extra chromosomes feel like the valedictorian of Harvard. Your commitment to show the rest of us out here that Neanderthals still exist is a testament to your never-fail dedication to represent the mentally challenged all over the world.

Game,

You forgot about Scorpion and his inability to understand what the definition of a co-payment.

DEDUCTIBLE....I'm amazed that no name individuals have so much time to look for mistakes...yet...when most of the anonymous responses are just a mistake..what should I expect..not much...of course I am not surprised that when you have that kind of point of view..of course I should think that what I meant couldn't be figured out..

From Bloomberg Media:

"The companies surveyed expect their costs of health-care benefits to rise an average of 8.9 percent next year. The legislation Obama signed in March will contribute an estimated 1 percentage point to the higher expense, Helen Darling, the business group's president, said at a press conference in Washington today. Employee-paid portions may see small increases, she said.

"Employers may be using the health-care law as cover for changes they already planned to make to their benefits, said Igor Volsky, a health-care researcher at the Washington-based Center for American Progress."

TBG wonders if you have an actual point, or just juxtaposing some fancy elitist language to make it look like you have something to say.

Either way, you ain't making no sense boy.
