When Darrell McNair, president and CEO of MVP Plastics Inc., went to renew the company’s healthcare plan for 2016, he learned that the renewal rate for an unchanged plan would mean an 11% increase.

He had his provider look into what it would be if he abandoned the plan and went to the Affordable Care Act marketplace. McNair learned that the best deal would still increase his premium, as well as the co-pays and deductibles for employees.

He decided to stick with his original plan, because he didn’t think the alternative was good for workers.
