    It’s not true. It’s a life of bad decisions.

    It’s a myth employers are paying more. They pay the same rate. When you go to the hospital, your employer doesn’t get a bill lol. YOU DO. Get a clue.

    Exactly. Employers pay part of the insurance policy. They're not responsible for medical bills accrued.

    Yes, you get a bill. But your employer pays a percentage of your medical insurance. That amount changes on an annual basis. It is costing them more, just like your medical premiums go up most years during open enrollment. That rate is affected by inflation and also by how much employees use their medical insurance benefits. Ask your employer if they are affected by people using their medical insurance more. The answer is yes.

    They pay a percentage of your monthly premium. It has nothing to do if you lost your leg, ate yourself into diabetes or get cancer.

    If it did, employers wouldn’t hire fat people and women.

    Ya know what people like you forget to say .... is that unvaccinated are 1/2 as likely to die today than they were back in December, and they are massively less likely to die compared to last summer's surge on a death/case ratio.

    That is the problem with data .... people like you choose your expression to cater to your agenda.

    EXACTLY! They pay a percentage of your monthly premium. So if the insurance company has to dish out more money, for whatever reason, they will pass it on to the consumer (employer). They are certainly not going to take a loss. Your employer then has to decide how much of the increased cost to pass on to you, the employee.

    People are less likely to die because of techniques learned by the doctors/nurses/scientists that you distrust so much. Like laying patients on their stomachs. That is the problem with data .... people like you choose your expression to cater to your agenda.

    But it’s a myth covid is making them pay more.

    If this was true, they wouldn’t hire fat people and women who don’t have abortions.
