Question: We offer health benefits to our 13 full-time employees, with no employer contribution, as a rule. However, for 15 years, we have contributed a portion to one employee’s health insurance for her child. Will there be a problem continuing to do so under Obamacare, or are we required to offer the same contribution to all?
Answer: Interesting question. First, let’s restate that since you have fewer than 50 full-time employees, you are not mandated to offer insurance to your employees now and will not be in future...

My question after reading the article on BusinessWeek: why should it be so difficult with health-care? Why can't the market take care of this as they do in other fields? Why are bureaucrats, politicians and pressure groups intruding in out lives all the time? If you want to have an antidote to Obamacare, please check out ad hoc organizations like Americans for Free Choice in Medicine (AFCM) and Freedom and Individual Rights in Medicine (FIRM).
