    There has been some discussion of the cadillac tax for a few reasons.

    1. Unions. Many unions have not accepted raises in lieu of keeping the same level of coverage and employer payouts.
    2. Mandates. Plans here can cost more than other places because we have a different set of mandates on state level than others and more than what the ACA is accounting for.

    I don't know if there will be exemptions..maybe not...but it is out there.

    I didn't read the whole article yet but i want to know something. In the first paragraph it says "it wouldn't cover pharmaceuticals and medical devices."

    I want to know in more detail what they mean because prescription drug coverage is part of the essential benefits.

    I know people who have had to change their employer based insurance as well.

    In a state, that already had mandated health insurance and high costs to begin with, I have NEVER seen a plan with a deductible at 13, 500 per person.

    Also, like Kim said why wouldn't it cover medications? That's a core item for minimum creditable coverage. Was he using experimental drugs?

    Seemed to explain it in the video pretty well to me

    I didn't hear any explanation of why the plan doesn't cover meds.

    It just seems fishy. 1500/mo for a individual for 13000 deduct? Between my employer and I my family plan (with no deductible if I go to certain hospitals) doesn't cost that. Sounds like SC is doing things wrong.

    The video didn't state 13000 deductible that I heard. he said that makes 13000 a year. Should have found a different link to post the information about it.. it was the first I found.. but he will not be the first to have the issue.. 13000 a year is a LOT of money..

    Also here's some food for thought on the other cancer patient that has been brought up and her 'caring insurer'. I particularly like the point made in the first article. Her insurer was having trouble in the california market pre-aca. Which is why its pulling out of that state among others, but not every state. Imagine what her prospects would have been if they had pulled out due to their failing business and there was no ACA?
