Some insurance provided by employers just isn’t good enough

It often seems like conservatives and business are ganging up to leave people vulnerable for profit. I am so tired of reading things like this:

When her employer offered the health plan late last summer, Allen thought she had to sign up. That was wrong.

Once she was on the employer plan, she thought she had to drop the better, more comprehensive coverage she had bought through MNsure, the state’s online insurance marketplace. That was also wrong.

After she learned that her work plan covered hardly anything, and she tried to get back on a marketplace policy, MNsure told her she’s not eligible for subsidies to buy it. Wrong again.
