Boeing Cotes Healthcare Bill as Factor in Rising Employee Health Insurance Costs

Boeing Co. has announced plans to increase the price of its employee health insurance for the non-unionised workforce. This is apparently in response to rapidly rising costs, which are partly a result of the new healthcare bill. By 2012, employees under a certain type of plan will see their coinsurance payments rise from 10 to 20% up to the out-of-pocket maximum.
