I am not a fan of state-mandated health care insurance and I am against the act that requires employers to offer employees health care. I think the act should be repealed, but if it is, I would like to see the requirements be much more stringent, specifically eliminating the requirement for the employer to offer health care.
Most people who are against this act believe that it is a waste of money and are forgoing the coverage. For me the act is just another reason people should be fired. It is a waste of corporate time and money to offer insurance to employees, because if you cannot afford health care coverage you aren’t going to be able to work.
I agree with this statement. If you cant afford insurance because you can’t afford medical providers, then you should probably just go without it. It’s like if the government says that you cannot have a cigarette, and you try to smoke one anyway. You will get arrested and sent to prison.
The new act puts a cap on how much you can be fined for getting sick and not getting a doctor, and how long it takes to get your medical bills paid. It also sets a minimum of 60 days for claims to be due and the amount of the fine.
The new law goes into effect on July 1st, and the fine will be on the first day of the new year. You can think of the new law as a tax on employees who get sick and cannot get a doctor, and who then go to get a lawyer and pay a fine when the lawyer is in town. This bill is not a tax on employers, but a penalty for their employees who have no insurance and do not have a good reason for not getting health insurance.
One of the most shocking parts of the new law is that it eliminates the requirement that employers provide employees with health insurance. The law also requires that employees can be charged with criminal offenses while not being covered by any insurance plan. This is certainly a step in the right direction, but it’s far from perfect. The new law is still not retroactive enough, so it’s difficult for employees to know whether they will be charged or not.
Of course, if you do have a health care plan, you can just continue to pay for health care until you are caught. But then you have to pay your “penalty” for not getting health insurance for the rest of your life, which is quite a big pain in the ass.
In addition to not being retroactive, the statute also doesn’t cover non-health benefits. But that’s not really an issue because our employer is pretty stingy with their health plan so there’s not really much we can do about it.
The Florida Employees Group Insurance (FEIG) law is a popular state law (and really a pretty good one) that covers employees of companies that have more than 150 employees. (It also includes the state’s unemployment insurance program.) Basically it lets companies that have over 150 employees to offer health-care plans to employees who arent covered by a traditional health care plan. The law is also supposed to protect workers who dont have health insurance with any kind of insurance they have.
