how was corporate USA dealing with geezer health insurance? BY DUMPING IT
and this trend began a LONG time ago
In the past, retirees could often count on their employers to provide health insurance until Medicare kicked in, or sometimes even after they were eligible for Medicare. But in 2007, only a third of large employers offered retiree health insurance, down from 66% in 1988, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Education Trust. Only 5% of employers with fewer than 200 employees offered retiree health insurance last year.
Early retirees try to fill gap in health coverage
Just remeber that the health insureance business wrote te "Obamacare" bill. None of the worthless slugs in Congress read it and certainly the Kenyan didn't either before he signed it. Just got a letter from my Medi-Care supplemental policy that my rates are going up 40% after the first. Both parties are totally beholden to those that really run this country. To H--- with the lot of them.
