Poll question: If you are an employee do you know what your employer pays to provide you with insurance?
Advertisements [?]
This poll is only for those employed. Not self-employed unless your spouse is employed by someone. Those with significant others should treat the responses as if they are spouses provided eligible to be covered under significant other's insurance. (I think there are some businesses that provide it)

Except for the last two the difference for each pair of responses is whether you know how much the employer pays to provide you or your spouse with insurance. You do or you don't.
