Kiplinger's is correct. From the article you cite above:
The tax on benefits doesn’t arrive until 2018, when insurers must pay a 40% tax on the portion of employer-sponsored “Cadillac” health-plan benefits that exceeds $10,200 for individuals or $27,500 for families (not including stand-alone vision or dental benefits). That limit includes the employer and employee portions of the premiums, plus any employee contributions to tax-favored health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts. This tax will be levied on insurers, not individuals. But insurers are expected to pass the higher costs on to employers, which are likely to pass them to employees or to trim coverage -- such as by increasing deductibles -- so the premiums will fall below the tax threshold.
So TVB... I've read the article and I've read the reports documenting how under the new Health Care Law insurance rates for everyone are going up, way up and the quality of medical care and accessibility to that poorer quality medical care is going down, way down. That's been all over the news this weekend and today, do I really need to provide links for you; maybe so if you are still depending on the MSM as your primary news source. Try http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opini ... 50239.html
for starters. Gee, and I haven't even mentioned the 74 other new taxes and mandates the law places on people. Data by the way which was available before the Congressional vote if anyone cared to look or listen. But I digress, so tell me again, how is this law supposed to be a win for everyone much less anyone? Lisa
