Universal Orlando plans to stop offering medical insurance to part-time employees beginning next year, a move the resort says has been forced by the federal government's health-care overhaul.
The giant theme-park resort, which generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue, began informing employees this month that it will offer health-insurance to part-timers "only until December 31, 2013."
The reason: 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.


So nothing is better than something.

That sucks.

Seeing as most of them are young, they were getting 5K in insurance for $72 pre tax dollars.

Not a bad gig for a part time employee.

Now you will be on a government controlled plan. Good Luck.

Boy, they could have stayed in a hospital bed one whole day! Damn you Barry! Now they'll just have to stay on their parent's real insurance plan until they turn 26

Parents are self employed?

What if the majority were already over the age of 26?

Yea, you are right, this is a good thing, you know it being an option and all......good thing it's off the table.

If any universal healthcare nation in the world was forced to go with what the US has, there would be a revolution and an overthrow of the government in that country.


Thats all you really need to know.

i'll take that under advisement when i become the leader of a foreign country, until then i'm trying to figure out a way that we can treat our citizens as well as we treat wealthy foreigners.

wealthy foreign nationals come here for procedures, middle class americans go to mexico for procedures... what the f*ck is wrong with us?
