At the company I was laid off from, my friend put his live in girlfriend on his insurance as a "domestic partner". The dollar difference between that and a "Single" plan was then added to his gross pay at the end of the year and it was taxed as regular income.
Whereas the total value of my "Family" plan was on a pre-tax basis.
I believe O'care is set to tax everyone's company provided insurance on a taxable, regular income basis.
