My husband is corporate, non-union, and for the time being, we still have employer-provided insurance which is quite good. Whether or not this will
continue next year is pretty much a crap-shoot; they say that surveys are predicting about 44% of employers are going to drop health care with some
estimates as high as 80%.
Basically, Obamacare makes it punitively expensive for employers to provide health care, and then the fines that are levied for not doing so are much
more reasonable. So, you can guess where most employers will jump.
What happened this year is that most people who held their own personal insurance saw their policies get cancelled because they were deemed
"inadequate" by HHS in DC, so the insurance companies basically cancelled most of them. The replacement policies are hella expensive and the fine
you pay for not being covered is cheaper in most cases, at least this year.
