2014 health care

PostBy: oros35 On: Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:12 am

As explained by my employer:

"You Must Have Health Insurance – It’s the Law
The health care reform law requires all legal U.S. residents to have basic health insurance coverage. This part of health care reform is called the “individual mandate.” The individual mandate goes into effect in January 2014.

When you file your taxes, you’ll need to show you have some type of health coverage or can qualify for a credit. It could be an employer’s plan, a marketplace plan, or a Medicare or Medicaid plan. You also can buy coverage directly from an insurer through the traditional market.

If you don’t have coverage, you’ll pay a tax penalty that will get bigger over time. The tax penalty in 2014 will be $95 per individual and will increase to $695 per individual in 2016. For a family, the tax is capped at $285 in 2014 and will rise to $2,085 in 2016. Since it’s a tax penalty, the IRS will collect the penalty through tax returns.

While there is much uncertainty regarding health care reform, we will keep you updated on any new developments as they occur."

They are encouraging the 'other option' for health care, rather than take my employers offered health care.

I thought Obamacare wasn't a tax. That's what he told us, isn't it?

Actually he admitted it when he had to fight for it in the supreme court. The only way he was able to keep it.

I get closer and closer to wanting to sell everything I own and just rent a house. I do any repairs or upgrades I get taxed up the A$$. If I have no insurance I pay at most $2100 tax or penalty. Then if I need medical care and don't have insurance and don't own anything they will still have to treat me and I will save about $14000/ year in health care costs. This country is so upside down in its thinking. We penalize the working class and coddle and enable the lazy. Even prisoners get better health care than most of us.

$2100/yr penalty is still significantly cheaper than the plan my employer offers.

The biggest problem is employers will instead of having 52 full time employees will now have 75 part time employees. I guess that is how it will fix the unemployment rate as well.

I found this to be interesting, a brief history of just how long this has been coming & how many times special interests have changed the direction.

Actually the employers will do even better than going from 52 full timers to 75 part timers. If they work 29 hours the employer can go up to 80.6 part timers. That guy/gal that is the .6 guy/gal will set up a new Obama category that will be called a part time part timer. This of course will lead to the creation of a new department to measure and report specifically on this new category. :shock: :) Mike

Yep, a local girl we know works part time at a convalesce home. Just got offered to work more hours but not quite full to stay under the minimum cap. As attrition keeps flitting away the old timers as they retire, they are not being replaced by good paying/Benefit generating jobs. They are hiring 3 more postions....part time with no bennies. What great a move Libtards.

And it isn't the lower tier jobs. My brother in law is a corporate accountant and an adjunct professor at a local college. The college dropped a few of his classes because they didn't want to have to offer him health insurance.

Shhh, don't let the word get out. Academia will have a fit...no, not really. Libs have a habit of slinking away and ignoring the truth.

My guess is that all these places always only had full time employees & provided them with full totally paid HCI.

Not true. My BIL was an adjunct professor and was paid per class. They cut his classes to prevent him from going over the 29 hour limit.
