2011 Senate Bill 7: Mandate 20 percent government employee health benefit contribution (House Roll Call 316)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 59 to 48 in the House on August 24, 2011, to prohibit the state, local governments, public schools, colleges and universities from providing employee health insurance benefits whose premiums cost more than $5,500 for a single person, $11,000 for a couple and $15,000 for a family plan (indexed to the "medical price index"), or alternatively, require employees to contribute at least 20 percent toward the cost. Most local governments but not schools could waive the requirements with a two-thirds vote of their governing body. This vote is for a House-Senate conference report that fine-tunes some details.

Health insurance helps people afford the cost of quality health care, for example for a nighthawk radiology clinic. It's one of the most valued benefits an employer can offer to his workforce. In most cases, an employer will not pay the entire cost of an employee's insurance. Just how much and how that effects employer and employee varies from situation to situation.

I'm not sure the additional contribution is such a good idea. I'm more for having people take of their health with eating the right food and exercise. If they have less in medical bills they should see less in health cost. Michigan coverage

Well as a Michigan resident, I definite hope they indicate how lots of and which drugs they will be testing for, since I am definite the more drugs they check for, the higher the cost, so it will effect my decision to apply if I'll must pay for it when it comes back negative for drugs Florida Medicare Supplement... I am a broke college child trying to survive, losing weight every day because I cannot afford food. But I guess that is what I get for growing up poor. After all, Republicans blame me for it anyway. Guess I should've died at birth like I was one time supposed to. Thanks for the confidence boost!
