W-2s list cost of providing a health plan

The New York Times, January 31, 2013

To some, it will be a surprise, perhaps even a shock. The disclosures, required by the 2010 health care law, are meant to make workers more cost-conscious. Health benefits are still tax-free. But labor unions and employer groups say it could be easier to tax them in the future, now that employers must report their value to the government.
