Obamacare Will Penalize Some Families for Employer-Provided Health Coverage

They'll be better off taking government-subsidized policies


Just imagine saying this to your boss: "Don't offer me health insurance benefits."

Those apparently bizarre words might actually end up being uttered next year because of an odd quirk in Obamacare that could financially penalize a number of workers and their families.

That quirk means that for some people, it will be more economical to have an employer not offer health insurance subsidies for them and their families—and for the entire family to then instead be able to buy insurance with government subsidies on the new Obamacare state health exchanges.
