Labor Unions' Obamacare's 'Cadillac Tax' 40%
Labor Unions' Latest Problem: Obamacare's 'Cadillac Tax' Harms Their Gold-Plated Health Insurance Plans As health coverage expands to tens of millions of Americans--through Medicaid expansion in states and the new state health insurance exchanges that will soon begin selling individual health coverage--some Americans with employer-sponsored health coverage are seeing their benefits decrease. One of the most significant, and controversial, provisions of the Affordable Care Act is the new excise tax on high-cost health plans proposed to both slow the rate of growth of health costs and finance the expansion of health coverage. The provision is often called the "Cadillac" tax because it targets so-called Cadillac health plans that provide workers the most generous level of health benefits. These high-end health plans' premiums are paid for mostly by employers. They also have low, if any, deductibles and little cost sharing for employees. Proponents of the new excise tax argue that these benefit-rich plans insulate workers from the high cost of care and encourage the overuse of care--such as unnecessary tests and hospital visits--that raise US health costs overall. However, the plans may be more costly and therefore subject to the new excise tax for reasons other than their generous benefits, including plan participants' health status or advanced age. A 40 percent excise tax will be assessed, beginning in 2018, on the cost of coverage for health plans that exceed a certain annual limit ($10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for self and spouse or family coverage). Health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-funded group health plans must pay the tax of 40 percent of any dollar amount beyond the caps that is considered "excess" health spending. Although the excise tax does not take effect for another four years, many employers are already scaling back their health benefit offerings or increasing workers' deductibles and copays to avoid paying the tax. Proponents argue that employers need a renewed focus on cost control, and that when consumers must pay a share of the costs, they will be less likely to overuse care. For consumers, especially those in poor health or with chronic illnesses who rely on Cadillac plans to cover high annual medical expenses, the tax means that they'll have to pay much more for their health care. Critics of the tax say it unfairly "hollows out" and "slashes" health benefits. It's not yet clear how widely the excise tax will be felt by both employers and consumers. This brief explains the tax, its current and projected effects, and what's next in the debate as the tax moves toward full implementation in 2018.

WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton Wants Obamacare to Collapse “Memo on Cadillac Tax for HRC,”
WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton Wants Obamacare to Collapse, Email Leaked An email leaked by WikiLeaks Tuesday appears to suggest that Hillary Clinton wants the Affordable Care Act to fail — presumably as a pretense for implementing single-payer, government-controlled health care. In a chain between Clinton and her senior policy adviser Ann O’Leary titled “Memo on Cadillac Tax for HRC,” Clinton said she’s open to changing her position on the Cadillac Tax — but that the Republican plan to repeal it must pass. "Given the politics now w bipartisan support including Schumer, I'll support repeal w 'sense of the Senate' that revenues would have to be found," Clinton wrote. "I'd be open to a range of options to do that. But we have to be careful that the R version passes which begins the unraveling of the ACA," she continued.

Unions & Cadilac Health Care Plans
Big Labor got some big love from President Obama and congressional Democrats yesterday after they agreed to exempt union workers from the whopping Cadillac tax on high-cost health-care plans until 2018. The sweetheart deal, hammered out behind closed doors, will save union employees at least $60 billion over the years involved, while others won't be as lucky -- they'll have to cough up almost $90 billion. The 40 percent excise tax on what have come to be called "Cadillac" health-care plans would exempt collective-bargaining contracts covering government employees and other union members until Jan. 1, 2018. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/unions_get_pecial_treatment_in_health_AB053CwqPIJlIxXAm37DOM#ixzz0cowvcHYn

Obama to Adjust 'Cadillac Tax' on Health Insurance
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama will propose tailoring the controversial "Cadillac tax" on expensive private health insurance plans to reflect regional differences when he releases his 2017 budget plan next week, a senior White House adviser said in an article released on Wednesday. Obama's proposal would reduce the bite of the unpopular tax by raising the threshold where it takes effect in areas where healthcare is particularly expensive, according to the article in the New England Journal of Medicine co-written by Jason Furman, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. ( bit.ly/1QdGlDG ) The tax on high-cost employer-based healthcare plans, passed as part of the president's 2010 Affordable Care Act and set to take effect in 2018, has generated growing opposition in part because labor unions say it could encourage employers to cut back on health insurance plans for workers. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/7B3oOGJ0R-o/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

Hillary Clinton Wants to Get Rid of Obamacare's 'Cadillac Tax'
Hillary Clinton is set to speak out against a provision of the Affordable Care Act, a law that she supports, as one of a series of reforms she is announcing for the federal health care law. Clinton called on Congress to "repeal the so-called Cadillac Tax, which applies to some employer-based health plans, and to fully pay for the cost of repeal." The provision known as the "Cadillac Tax" is scheduled to take effect in 2018 and is meant to rein in overly generous employer health care plans. It applies a 40% excise tax to health plans that exceed an annual cost of $10,200 a year for individuals and $27,500 for families.

Tax on Workers Health Insurance Plans a Bad Idea
Hosting a press conference with labor leaders and organized workers, Sen. Bernie Sanders called for the elimination of a provision in the Senate health reform proposal which would tax some health insurance plans. Imposing an excise tax on health insurance plans would be a disaster for millions of middle class Americans, Sanders said. Sanders introduced an amendment to strike the provision from the Senate-introduced Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The so-called Cadillac health insurance plans in fact can have premiums around $8,500 for an individual plan and $23,000 for a family plan.

5 Major Trends Shaping Health Care--A Look Back at 2016
Mercer | https://www.mercer.us | Mercer Identifies 5 Major Trends Shaping Healthcare Today Our deep expertise, powerful insights, and real-world solutions help the people and organizations we serve take steps today to secure a better tomorrow. The rising costs of healthcare coupled with the Excise tax, or Cadillac Tax, are an impetus for employers to control the cost of health benefit plans for themselves and employees. Healthcare benefits are a key factor in employee retention, even more so than salary. Mercer conducted a national survey of employer sponsored health plans and identified 5 major key trends that are contributing to the way in which employers provide employer sponsored health benefits to employees. Transcript: Health benefits are changing faster than ever. This year nearly 2500 organizations of all sizes took part in our national survey of employer sponsored health plans. Organizations provided detailed information about health plan offerings and design, current and projected cost, and strategies in place to control cost, engage employees, and meet business and HR objectives. We spotted 5 major trends that are shaping healthcare today. First, the Excise Tax aka as the Cadillac tax, motivated employers to take bold action to control cost and their efforts were a factor behind 2015’s modest cost growth. Although the health benefit trend has slowed nationally, many employers still struggle with unsustainable increases and remain at risk of hitting the Excise Tax cost threshold in 2020. Second, employees are going shopping. High deductible consumer driven health plans are a key strategy for controlling costs and avoiding the excise tax. New options like telemedicine and retail clinics, give patients lower cost alternatives to office visits while new tools let them comparison shop for services so they can stretch their healthcare dollars even with a high deductible. Third, employers are embracing technology to build a healthier workforce. One quarter of large employers are encouraging employees to track physical activity with wearable devices while 30% are using mobile apps to engage employees to care for their health. Fourth, despite the challenges of health reform and the opening of public exchange, large employers remain committed to providing healthcare coverage. For a while, small employers weren’t so sure, but that’s changing. Now, fewer small employers believe it’s likely they will drop their plans and send employees to the public exchange in the next five years. 93% of employers with 50 -499 employees now say they’ll keep their plans up from 79% in 2013 Fifth, health benefits change how employees feel about work. 89% of employees said that getting health benefits through work is just as important to them as getting a salary. People want to feel good about their benefits. What will 2016 look like? We expect to see plenty of change. Employers told us they expect to hold cost increases to just 4.3% on average in 2016. If they made no changes however, costs would rise by 6.3%. That’s why about half of all employers have made changes in 2016. The healthcare market is changing rapidly, but employers large and small, are rising to the challenge. - - - - - - - Mercer Website: Is your organization ready for the digital future?
