Healthcare Issues

Healthcare is one of the most important benefits an employee can receive.  IAM-represented employees enjoy some of the best health care coverage in the United States.  Twenty five percent of Americans say they stay in jobs they don’t enjoy because of the health care benefits they receive. The reason these people keep these jobs is because health care is too expensive to take care of without help. Employers are also requiring that their employees contribute more toward the cost of healthcare. How did healthcare get so expensive? More importantly can the costs be reduced?  How do we ensure that health care quality is the best possible?  What sources of information are available to assess healthcare plans and providers?  These and other healthcare related issues form the core of this new information site.
