    We offer to pay 50% of a pretty decent plan. Only 1 of 12 employees takes advantage of the offer. A few are on other people's plans (spouse, parent), but most are just taking a chance and doing the emergency room dance. We'd love to just give it to our employees but we just can't afford it.

      People don't take the insurance when it's half off?? That's amazing.

      I pay all my own premiums, drifting between self employment and unemployment. I guess it's more asset protection than health care... I go to the doctor about once in five years, so anything I go in for is always out of pocket considering co-pays and deductibles and co insurance amounts. Although looking at the $300 per month I'm paying now, and extrapolating over the next 20 years ... I wonder how long I'll be staying in the insurance market myself...
