You're right. $10,200 a year isn't a Cadillac policy in my opinion. At the previous company I worked for in 2010 and earlier, a family plan cost
around $800 to $850 a month. It was a decent PPO plan with United HealthCare, but I still had numerous out of pocket costs, $20 to $50 co-pays
depending on the doctor, etc.
I also agree with the poster who said that many employers are scaling back to under 50 people (although for 2015, the limit will temporarily be 80 and
then it reverts back to 50 for 2016).
At the end of the day, if I decide to pay a few hundred dollars more a month to hedge my bets against something happening with my families health, who
is the government to tell me it's excessive and tax me. What's excessive is their endless pissing away of money on useless programs. Hey government,
clean your own act up before sticking your nose into the PRIVATE choices that I make.
