Dear Senators McConnell and Coats: On behalf of the National Federation of Independent Business NFIB, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, I am writing in strong support of your legislation, S.1488, which would delay the individual and employer mandates until 2015. The delay would alleviate confusion for small-business owners, self-employed individuals and small-business employees. Delaying problematic provisions provides temporary relief for individuals and small businesses, while also validating the underlying problems inherent in the law and its implementation. Perhaps most importantly, delay of these provisions provides Congress additional time to correct problematic provisions in the law. ...

Some of these gardens also supply the company cafeteria, or the local food bank. Companies have put container gardens on rooftops, converted former smoking areas, or simply dug into the office park lawns. In some cases employees lobbied for a garden in others it was a manager that ...

... Bloomberg. Bloomberg Business. Industry Products. Video. Global. Businessweek. Video. Yesterday evening the White House announced it would delay implementation of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act, giving businesses with more than 50 workers an extra year before they must offer health insurance to employees. ABC News’ Rick Klein says that red state Democrats are likely relieved by the delay, which will push the implementation of the employer mandate to after 2014 elections, and Ezra Klein argued that the administration’s “ regulatory end run around Congress” wasn’t the best way to solve problems with the employer mandate. Larry Levitt, a senior vice present at the Kaiser Family Foundation, told Kaiser Health News that “the large majority of employers already offer health coverage to their workers” and that the employer mandate was never expected to change that. Ninety-eight percent of companies with more than 200 workers and 94 percent of businesses with 50 to ...

Yes, Republicans have done everything they can to impede implementation of this law. The Treasury Department released rules Monday for medium and large employers, which under the ACA are supposed to chip in for their employees' health care. The law says they were supposed to have provided health coverage to full-time employees by Jan. Last summer, in response to business concerns that the rules weren't ready, Treasury delayed these ...

LiberalLies2012 5pts. Soptic later told CNN that his wife had health insurance through her own employer from that point to 2002 or 2003, when she left that job because of an injury—a detail that undermines the ad's heartbreaking narrative."I don't know the facts about when Mr. Soptic's wife got sick, or the facts about his health insurance," deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter told CNN on Wednesday. The Joe Soptic ad is factually inaccurate, but the ideas it represents are true: Bain did kill a lot of jobs. People who lost their jobs lost their employment-based health insurance. This severely worsened the economic condition of most of them and made it harder for them to afford health insurance and care. Some laid-off workers and their dependents suffered deteriorated health as a result of losing the insurance. It is true that people without health insurance get less care, on average, than people who do have it. It is true -- like it or not -- that some people ...

How Congress could have ducked the fight over contraception. By Jon Healey. Starting in January, those with 50 or more full-time workers will face a penalty of at least $40,000 if any of their workers obtains subsidized coverage from a state insurance exchange rather than from an employer-provided plan. Congress could have avoided these fights by embracing an alternative approach to healthcare reform that had bipartisan support but was in some ways more radical than the Affordable Care Act: ending the country's reliance on employer-provided health insurance. Bennett R-Utah, whose proposed Healthy Americans Act would have replaced the federal tax subsidy for employer-provided coverage with one for individually purchased insurance. Democrats didn't like the idea of shifting insurance costs from employers onto employees, even though many employers have already been aggressively doing so as insurance premiums skyrocketed. There's also the contention that lower-wage employers will dump ...

View full site. A mong the tenets of the Affordable Care Act is the notion that basic preventive health care be covered by virtually all insurance policies, including employer-sponsored plans. At issue is whether the provision requiring that insurance policies offer free contraception to women runs afoul of various organizations’ religious beliefs. The Department of Health and Human Services has crafted exemptions for those institutions as well as provisions for religiously affiliated organizations such as universities and hospitals, which do not have to provide coverage including contraception; their employees can procure it directly from insurers. But some private employers whose religious beliefs are violated by the contraception provision have tried to extend the exemption to the coverage they offer employees. It is reasonable to include that service along with other basic health-care offerings such as alcohol, tobacco, depression, cancer and HIV ...

*  Employee Wellness Is Ill-Conceived - BusinessWeek
Others make it mandatory: Quit smoking or lose your job. by Amanda Layton, WolfBlock Workplace wellness programs have the potential to reduce medical care costs for both employers and employees and typically provide employees with additional benefits such as access to health education programs, medical screenings, and discounts on health services. Employers certainly do not meddle in employees’ health by sponsoring wellness programs. Employees have a choice to quit a company with a mandatory wellness program and work at another company better suited to their desires. The wellness programs are out there to protect the insurance companies, not the consumer. The employers and the insurance companies do not want to cover the cost of employee benefits. So, here is this wellness package that costs the company money to include, and folks who are healthy are going to visits, just to get their wellness visits in, because it is now a covered ...

Home. Employee Benefits Employers: the key to healthcare costs is not the government or the carriers, it’s your employees Employers: the key to healthcare costs is not the government or the carriers, it’s your employees June 18, 2012. Christopher Nadeau. Leave a comment. Go to comments. Call me an optimist, or a pessimist, but regardless of the outcome of the SJC ruling on PPACA, little will change in the current healthcare delivery system. Yes, some employers may punt to the exchanges, some will subsidize an individual market purchase, and some will cancel coverage, but most employers will continue to bear the burden of medical costs that have been far too expensive for too many reasons. Whether it is struck down, upheld, or tweaked, PPACA has done, and will do nothing to control the cost of healthcare. Carriers have also failed at controlling claim costs and will continue to fail in an existing or post PPACA environment. So what’s the ...

(1/623) Explaining the decline in health insurance coverage, 1979-1995.

The decline in health insurance coverage among workers from 1979 to 1995 can be accounted for almost entirely by the fact that per capita health care spending rose much more rapidly than personal income during this time period. We simulate health insurance coverage levels for 1996-2005 under alternative assumptions concerning the rate of growth of spending. We conclude that reduction in spending growth creates measurable increases in health insurance coverage for low-income workers and that the rapid increase in health care spending over the past fifteen years has created a large pool of low-income workers for whom health insurance is unaffordable.  (+info)

(2/623) Behavioral health benefits in employer-sponsored health plans, 1997.

Data for 1997 show that three-quarters or more of employer-sponsored health plans continue to place greater restrictions on behavioral health coverage than on general medical coverage. The nature of these restrictions varies by plan type. Some improvement in the treatment of mental health/substance abuse (MH/SA) benefits in employer plans may be occurring, however. Comparisons with data from 1996 show that the proportion of plans with benefits for "alternative" types of MH/SA services, such as nonhospital residential care, has increased. Further, the proportion with special limitations on these benefits shows a modest decrease.  (+info)

(3/623) Raising the bar: the use of performance guarantees by the Pacific Business Group on Health.

In 1996 the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH) negotiated more than two dozen performance guarantees with thirteen of California's largest health maintenance organizations (HMOs) on behalf the seventeen large employers in its Negotiating Alliance. The negotiations put more than $8 million at risk for meeting performance targets with the goal of improving the performance of all health plans. Nearly $2 million, or 23 percent of the premium at risk, was refunded to the PBGH by the HMOs for missed targets. The majority of plans met their targets for satisfaction with the health plan and physicians, as well as cesarean section, mammography, Pap smear, and prenatal care rates. However, eight of the thirteen plans missed their targets for childhood immunizations, refunding 86 percent of the premium at risk.  (+info)

(4/623) Cost of tax-exempt health benefits in 1998.

The tax expenditure for health benefits is the amount of revenues that the federal government forgoes by exempting the following from the federal income and Social Security taxes: (1) employer health benefits contribution, (2) health spending under flexible spending plans, and (3) the tax deduction for health expenses. The health tax expenditure was $111.2 billion in 1998. This figure varied from $2,357 per family among those with annual incomes of $100,000 or more to $71 per family among those with annual incomes of less than $15,000. Families with incomes of $100,000 or more (10 percent of the population) accounted for 23.6 percent of all tax expenditures.  (+info)

(5/623) Why are workers uninsured? Employer-sponsored health insurance in 1997.

This study examines the number of workers in firms offering employee health plans, the number of workers eligible for such plans, and participation in employer-sponsored insurance. Data from the February 1997 Contingent Worker Supplement to the Current Population Survey indicate that 10.1 million workers are employed by firms offering insurance but are not eligible. Not all of these workers are eligible for coverage, most often because of hours of work. Our results indicate that 11.4 million workers rejected coverage when it was offered. Of those, 2.5 million workers were uninsured. Workers cited high cost of insurance most often as the primary factor for refusing coverage.  (+info)

(6/623) Employer's willingness to pay: the case for compulsory health insurance in Tanzania.

This article documents employers' expenditure on the arrangements for the health care of their employees in one of the least developed countries; Tanzania. The case for compulsory health insurance is considered in the light of the fact that only 3% of the population is employed in the formal sector and could be covered at first. It is shown from a survey of larger employers, outside government, that they were spending on average 11% of payroll on health care for their employees. This demonstrated their lack of satisfaction with the government health services. Nevertheless, those who could readily be covered by insurance were making considerable use of the more expensive government hospital services. It is argued that a compulsory health insurance scheme could be introduced for the formal sector of employment which would cover a wider range of health services at lower cost. The scheme would also have the desirable economic effect of lowering employers' labour costs while making it possible to improve the standards of the government health services.  (+info)

(7/623) Changes in benefit payments and health insurance premiums among firms switching health insurance carriers.

Employer-purchased group health insurance is a major source of funding in the US healthcare system, accounting for approximately one third of each healthcare dollar spent. Surprisingly, little is known about employers' behavior in purchasing health insurance or the circumstances leading employers to switch health insurance carriers. We descriptively analyzed data for a cohort of 95 insured groups between 1985 and 1991 to determine the frequency with which employers switch health insurance carriers and the growth pattern in premiums and benefit payments before the switch was made. Thirty-seven percent of groups switched carriers during the study period, with at least five groups switching each year from 1987 through 1991. The groups that switched insurance carriers experienced higher average annual rates of growth in benefit payments than those that did not switch (18% versus 11%). Groups that switched did not have significantly higher observed premium growth rates than those that did not switch, suggesting that employers decided to switch insurers before absorbing an increase in premiums. However, some firms that switched experienced below average increases in both benefit payments and premiums, indicating that premiums and anticipated premium increases are not solely responsible for the decision to switch health insurance carriers.  (+info)

(8/623) Does competition by health maintenance organizations affect the adoption of cost-containment measures by fee-for-service plans?

How groups insured by fee-for-service health plans react to increased competition from health maintenance organizations (HMOs) is an unresolved question. We investigated whether groups insured by indemnity plans respond to HMO market competition by changing selected health insurance features, such as deductible amounts, stop loss levels, and coinsurance rates, or by adopting utilization management or preferred provider organization (PPO) benefit options. We collected benefit design data for the years 1985 through 1992 from 95 insured groups in 62 US metropolitan statistical areas. Multivariate hazard analysis showed that groups located in markets with higher rates of change in HMO enrollment were less likely to increase deductibles or stop loss levels. Groups located in markets with higher HMO enrollment were more likely to adopt utilization management or PPO benefit options. A group located in a market with an HMO penetration rate of 20% was 65% more likely to have included a PPO option as part of its insurance benefit plan than a group located in a market with an HMO penetration rate of 15% (p < 0.05). Concern about possible adverse selection effects may deter some fee-for-service groups from changing their health insurance coverage. Under some conditions, however, groups insured under fee-for-service plans do respond to managed care competition by changing their insurance benefits to achieve greater cost containment.  (+info)

What are the health benefits of drinking black tea?


  • What are the health benefits of drinking black tea? Is it OK to put milk or half and half/light cream in it? Also how many cups of black tea should be consumed in a day to get the benefits from drinking black tea? Would one cup be enough?
  • The health benefits of black tea have been well documented for quite some time, and if you are thinking of adding more black tea to your diet, then its health benefits likely have played a big part in your decision. The big difference between black tea and other types of tea, like white and green tea, is that it is more oxidized. As a result of this increased oxidation, black tea is a lot more flavorful and caffeine-laden than its counterparts which do not enjoy this amount of oxidation. Another difference is that the flavor of black tea is retained for quite a while longer - sometimes, up to several years longer - than the flavor among other teas. Here are three health benefits to drinking black tea: 1. Very Low in Sodium, Fat and Calories Provided that you drink black tea that is pure and plain, and without the addition of sweeteners, you are drinking a tea that is ultra low in sodium, fat and calories. This property of black tea is advantageous for people who want to lose weight or even just control their weight. In essence, if you merely substitute the intake of other kinds of beverages like unhealthy soda drinks with black tea, you are already doing your body a great favor in sparing it the intake of weight gain causing calories. Furthermore, if you drink more black tea in place of other beverages that contain higher amounts of sodium and fat, you are helping your body become more healthy. Too much sodium is linked with all kinds of lethal conditions and diseases, while too much fat amounts to the same thing. 2. Reduce Cardiovascular Problems Certain studies over the years have established that there is a direct relationship between increased black tea consumption and a decrease in cardiovascular disease. In 2001, Boston University found in a study that both short-term as well as long-term drinking of black tea actually reverses something called endothelial vasomotor dysfunction in patients with coronary artery disease. This is a dysfunction which basically serves as a predictor for even more serious coronary events. The conclusions in the study backed up a previously held link between black tea and its propensity to lower cardiovascular problems. 3. Bountiful in Antioxidants Another benefit of drinking black tea is a sizeable one: the abundance of antioxidants in it. Black tea is made from the camellia tea plant. The great benefit of this tea plant is that it comes with a plethora of the group of chemical substances known as polyphenol. These substances are one type of antioxidant, and antioxidants have been found to help in everything from the treatment of brain injury cases to treatments against hearing loss and also, potentially, Parkinson's disease. They are, however, no longer thought to significantly help fight diseases like cancer as they once were thought to.

If they were to work for somebody or a hospital then they may be offered benefits. Good luck! Hope I helped! Please mark as best answer if it is. Any other questions feel free to message me. Tyler

What are the health benefits of using tofu?


  • What are the health benefits of replacing chicken in things like stir fry by using tofu? I am not a vegetarian, but I am trying to cut down on meat. Is there any beneficial reason to eat tofu instead? If it makes any difference, I'm also trying to lose about 6 lbs.
  • Well for a start it tastes sooo good! Marinade it in honey, oil and garlic and its just soooo good, then stirfry it with veg and a blue dragon lemon stirfry sauce, but as for health reasons: Good source of protein with minimal fat For women it regulates your hormones due to its estrogen content, thought for men just two servings of soya/tofu a week can lower sperm count I think it's good for your heart but I'm not sure about that one It's just really useful, I'm a non preachy vegetarian and I just love the fact you won't give yourself food poisoning with tofu. I don't know if it has any weight loss properties so to speak, just try it (I recommend cauldron tofu from the fridge section, about £1.10 from Morrison's, not blue dragon, if you're in the UK)


What are the health benefits of chick peas?


  • What are the health benefits of chick peas? I know a very healthy person who is always eating chick peas. What is so good about them?
  • Some varieties of beans, notably chick peas, are rich in plant substances known as phytoestrogens which have an action similar to, though far weaker than, the hormone oestrogen in the body. Some scientists have speculated that consuming a diet rich in phytoestrogens may help protect against heart disease. Research suggests that one effect of phytoestrogens is to lower blood levels of the blood fats low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and triglycerides that are linked with heart disease and stroke. One study, found that feeding rats with chick peas brought about significant reductions in the levels of both these forms of unhealthy fats. However, even beans that do not contain much in the way of phytoestrogens may have benefits on fat levels in the bloodstream on account of their rich fibre content. Beans also tend to be rich in folic acid which, amongst other benefits, appears to help reduce the risk of heart disease. In one study, eating four or more servings of beans or lentils each week was found to confer significant protection from heart disease. While baked beans are seen as a staple food by many of us, I would tend to avoid these on account of their added sugar and salt.


What are the health benefits of raw garlic?


  • I've heard garlic (raw) is a natural antibiotic. What are other health benefits of eating raw garlic and also how much should I eat daily to be able to get the benefits?
  • There are none that are proven by science. There is some evidence that it's possible that garlic kills some bacteria and/or viruses in a petri dish, but that's a far cry from having any health benefits for a person who eats it. My favorite anecdote (and yes, I am aware that anecdotes are not evidence, but they are amusing) about the reported health benefits of garlic is this: Friend: Do you have any raw garlic? I have a cold? Me: Why garlic? F: Garlic is a natural anti-viral. M: Really? I had never heard that. Friend #2: Yeah, that's what he eats garlic every day. Didn't you wonder about that? M: Yeah... F1: Yeah, I eat a head of garlic every day. M: Well if you eat that much garlic every day, and garlic kills viruses, and you got this cold anyway, why do you think that more garlic would kill the virus that gave you this cold? At the very least, this cold is immune to garlic. Possibly, garlic is not anti-viral. F1:
