Time to close loophole in S.F. health care law
San Francisco Chronicle

Edwin is a young, healthy San Franciscan working at a hotel. While commuting on his bike, he was clipped by a car and taken by ambulance to San Francisco General. Instead of providing Edwin with health insurance, his employer had funded a Health Reimbursement Account. Edwin’s bills totaled $5,500; the amount in his account was $2,500, leaving him $3,000 in debt.
