McDon­ald’s may drop health­care

Los Angeles Times - - 9• 30•10 -

McDon­ald’s Corp. may cut health in­surance for nearly 30,000 hourly work­ers in the U.S. un­less fed­eral reg­u­la­tors waive a re­quire­ment of the new health­care law.

The chain is at odds over the law’s stip­u­la­tion that “mini-med” in­surance plans, which pro­vide limited ben­e­fits, spend at least 80% of pre­mium rev­enue on med­i­cal care, the Wall Street Jour­nal re­ported.

The ar­ti­cle quoted a fed­eral of­fi­cial as say­ing the govern­ment does not want em­ploy­ers to drop cov­er­age be­cause of the law.
