Regarding taxing healthcare benefits:
The working middle class gets shafted again? Maybe it would make better sense for all employeeswho usually cant afford the family plans most of the time anywayto give up their insurance and jump on the free care bandwagon.
Of course, this would put more hurt on hospitals.
Some 54% of all hospitals are in the red; of hospitals with more than 500 beds, 80% are in the red, according to the Healthcare Financial Management Associations Healthcare Financial Pulse at hfma.org/pulse.
