You take the employer out of the equation and your health insurance cost alone would kill your paycheck.  The employer is paying nearly 50% of your insurance premium. So, they have a say.  Unfortunately, that say entitles them to try and save every nickel and dime, such as this case.

 

The problem will never go away until health care becomes a service, not a business.  But, to do that hospitals, ambulances, and drug companies would all need to convert to a government service.  It just isn't going to happen with the greedy 1%.

Then my job can offer to pay me more so I can afford the coverage. There is no reason to couple the two together.

 

It also has nothing to do with Hospitals or the others you mentioned.

God, am I glad I'm Canadian/Australian. I can't believe Americans don't start a revolution on Healthcare, it's so incredibly sad.

I know some people may disagree but I think state funded healthcare free for all at the point of service is a must for any forward thinking progressive society.

Someone should have used a little common sense, though. It's only 26 cents.

When the truck driver took time off work to seek treatment under the Family and Medical Leave Act, he was told that treatment for the leukemia required a bone-marrow transplant that would cost about $500,000, even with insurance.

And that right there is everything that is wrong with this country's terrible healthcare system.

Yep, but not a single problem with the 'health care' in the US. IT WAS A .26 CENT MISTAKE YOU GREEDY ****S.

Everyone's so busy attacking the healthcare system (or lack of it) but nobody noticed that the guy was sacked because he was sick.  Why do American's hate people so much?

As I have been told when I was a worker, If you are not producing and making me money, then you are not making money and your fired. That's how the US is ran. Well, that and stupid ######ing wars we have no business being in, but that's another story entirely.

The frustrating part is I don't see this changed for the better.
