Low-Skilled Workers Get Raw Deal Under Obamacare

Looks like under Obamacare many lower skilled workers will end up with “skinny” or “band aid” health insurance plans which may cover a few doctors visits and some prescriptions but may leave the insured exposed to catastrophic loss. This is exactly what we don’t need.

(From Real Clear Politics)

But larger employers, they write, “need only cover preventive service, without a lifetime or annual dollar-value limit, in order to avoid the across-the-workforce penalty.” Low-benefit plans may cost an employer only $40 to $100 a month per employee. That’s less than the $2,000-per-employee penalty for providing no insurance.

“We wouldn’t have anticipated that there’d be demand for these type of Band-Aid plans in 2014,” the Journal quotes former White House health adviser Robert Kocher. “Our expectation was that employers would offer high-quality insurance.”

Oops. It turns out that Friedrich Hayek may have been right when he wrote that central planners would never have enough information to micromanage the economy.
