• ### Isn't Health Insurance a form of Compensation?

When Hobby Lobby and other business pay employees' health insurance, isn't that a form of compensation in addition to their wages?

When Hobby Lobby and other business pay employees' health insurance, isn't that a form of compensation in addition to their wages? My understanding is that the reason why employers cover health insurance is because they get a tax break for doing so and that this incentive is the reason for the employer based health care system to begin with. Otherwise, you would just get that money along with your wages. In other words, health insurance from your boss isn't a hand-out, it's pay...that you earned. Am I thinking of this correctly?

On a friend's Facebook thread, someone said that her sister, who was born with a defect is losing her Medicare coverage because of Obamacare and cannot afford to get coverage through Obamacare. I have already logged on to Obamacare and got an estimate (as a commuting student who works part-time, I make very little money) for a quite low monthly premium and subsidy. I am confused as to why this disabled woman's costs might be higher. Apparently, she isn't able to work.

I recently got hired at a new part time job. I'm scheduled to do the paperwork & the training, I did well in both interviews, I'm excited. I'm a premed student & what I've done this past year is work, go to school and volunteer. So with this new job, I also found a new volunteer opportunity in a lab, & they wanted to know my availability. I called the new job to see if they can tell me what my new schedule is going to look like. When the manager called me back he seemed confused and flustered- seemed to think I was changing my availability, when all I was asking is when they wanted me to come to work? He wasn't angry but he made it seem like I was posing some kind of problem- said he was sorry to put me in a bind...the call ended on a good note (I reiterated that my availability is the same & that I am quitting my old job, which he seemed to think I was keeping??) Did I breach some kind of etiquette?

A few years ago, a friend of mine opened her first checking account. Her father asked to use the account and made a deposit + withdrawal. He overdrew the account and the bank added on fees. The account wwas closed. it was only within the past year that she checked her credit report for the first time and realized that she owes this bank nearly \$2000.I've told her she can go to the bank and pay it off, but she wants to have clean credit so she can get on with her life. it sucks that she has to pay for her father's irresponsibility. So, my question is, if they both go to the bank, can he assume this debt on his credit?
