The SeekingAlpha article is a good article; lots of story lines; lots of things to think about. The article has to do with corporate profits. But is was two comments that caught my attention. The first comment:
The next great corporate savings will be healthcare, or should I say not having to pay for it. When large corporations realize how much more they can save by pushing their employees to ACA there will be another stair step in corporate profits.I agree 100%. I was surprised, the article said so little about ObamaCare.
The second comment:
They won't eliminate it [health care costs] completely. They'll pay their employees enough to go out and buy Obamacare. But they'll lose the aggravation and the potential legal liability. But they won't save a lot, there's still no such thing as a free lunch.There is no such thing as a "free lunch," but if one can set one's own price for lunch, that's not a bad deal.
What these folks are missing is "predictability." High cost of health care is/was an issue for corporations, but many of them could pass on the cost to their customers. The real problem for Corporate America was the unpredictability of annual increases in the health care costs. They simply couldn't budget what their costs were going to be.
By providing their employees a monthly stipend to find their own health care program, Corporate America can now plan how much they will spend on health care in the out years. I'm not saying ObamaCare will solve all the health care issues CA faces but it will certainly go a long way to making things easier for bigger corporations and more nimble corporations.
