We value offering insurance to our employees, it's important to us. Our costs have gone up. We have looked into releasing everyone to the system but personally our family will pay even more if we choose to do that. It's NOT cheaper in many situations. Either we continue to offer to our employees, at a higher cost (because premiums have gone up, a lot, and it's not due to our diabetic son as referred to in the article, it's due to insurance costs continually rising for everyone) or we throw everyone to their own devices, which will be a pay cut for them (we pay 75% of their costs now) since they'll have to pay for their own and in our state, it's not that affordable. The alleged benefits do not equal the costs at this point. I hope it does eventually.
