It seem that the part-time workers at Universal Studios Orlando are going to lose their insurance at the end of next year. The culprit? ObamaCare! The Lid has more…
Universal Studios Orlando provides limited health insurance for it’s part time workers…or at least will until the end of the year. The theme park announced that it will stop offering medical insurance to part-time employees beginning next year, a move the resort says has been forced by Obamacare.
Universal currently offers part-time workers a limited insurance plan that has low premiums but also caps the payout of benefits. For instance, Universal’s plan costs about $18 a week for employee-only coverage but covers only a maximum of $5,000 a year toward hospital stays. There are similar caps for other services.
Those types of insurance plans — sometimes referred to as “mini-med” plans — will no longer be permitted under the federal Affordable Care Act. Beginning in 2014, the law will prohibit insurance plans that impose annual monetary limits on essential medical care such, as hospitalization, or on overall spending.
Well, well, well. More people LOSING their benefits due to ObamaCare?
Elections have consequences. 3
