How about shorting the duck? I get bombarded by Aflac (AFL) ads on CNBC. Employers are in their biggest benefit package cut mode since the early 90s. Who cares about supplimental insurance when the company just doubled what the employee pays for basic medical?


No guff, Chet. I went from working for a small-med. health-care corporation to a smallish private partnership and my medical for family went from less than a $100/month to $500/month. Oh yea, I pay my own way now for life, disability, mental anguish, overworked syndrome, etc. It's the new wave. Not that I blame them, insurance is big ticket expense for employers.
