Why don’t employers in Australia prinsurance to fill gaps of Medicare (Canada does that)?
Why don’t employers in Australia prinsurance to fill gaps of Medicare (Canada does that)?Prior to the 1980s there were companies in Oz that provided a range of Fringe Benefits such as gap insurance or full private health insurance. In fact, just after Medicare was introduced, the insurance company FAI had a policy for “gap” insurance, but that threatened “the scheduled fee” regime of the government and encouraged MDs to charge above the schedule fee. MDs can to this day charge above the schedule fee, and its upto the patient whether to change MDs to avoid the excess or not. In any case, the laws changed & insurance companies either had to prfull health insurance comparable to Medicare or none at all (they could prsupplementary cover for dental, chiro etc & other services not covered by Medibank).Anyway, prior to 1986 execs like me took full advantage of negotiating fringe benefits in lieu of salary to avoid (reduce) income tax (the top rate was 60% on each $ over x amount).To reduce income tax overall, the government introduced a Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT), that gross up the “net” (pocketed) benefit and taxed FBs at the top rate. That caused junior execs to be worse off but had no real inpact on senior execs. The admin overhead to report & collect FBTs was a pain for business, so many large businesses stopped offering FBs & initially grossed up salaries instead. Some companies continue offering FBs, but usually in the form of cars, private school fees, golf club fees etc. Depending on how FBs are structured they have tax advantages - an industry evolved ti design “salary forfeitures” in exchange for FBs to minimize (avoid) income tax (eg: granting of options or shares has major tax advantages). Like car leasing, some companies instead of direct provision have arrangements with health funds for “bulk rates” which are cheaper than the normal retail offerings. The major advantage over employer provided health cover, is the employee can take their health cover from employer to employer or change funds offering better rates or cover.Years ago I read how the USA ended up with its strange, inequitable system of employer sponsored health insurance. My memory is vague on the details, but as I remember it, after WW2 there were labour shortages in certain occupations, and employers came to offering sweeteners to attract people to them. Then came the McCarthy (there is a commie under every bed) purges of the 1950s , and that put the nail in the coffin of publicly subsidised health care.Before medicare, here in Australia we had non-profit mutual funds & benevolent societies that provided health insurance. Then USA carpetbaggers entered the market, which led to the Health funds demutalising & becoming for-profit organisations. Health costs began to rise because of the obvious monopolies, so Oz put the brakes on this exploitation and introduced Medicare which gave the same cover at a lower cost to the populace. Australians pay a contribution of 2% of net taxable income towards medicare costs (the rest comes from general revenue). There is no cost to low income households & pensioners. Persons earning excessive income (over $90k for singles, or $180k for households) pay a 1% surcharge or are obligated to take out private health cover (their free choice).In my families experience, it is a most excellent system if you are genuinely ill and needing medical assistance. You see the MD of your choice. Generally you see the specialists your MD refers you to, just as happens with private insurance. If stuck in hospital, you’ll generally be admitted to a ward with four beds in it (my preference). Sometimes when there is necessity you are put in a private room (most lonely if you aren’t sedated or high on medication). In a public hospital, like private health cover, you generally don’t get a choice of doctor etc but everything is free (private hospitals itemise everything and you are at the mercy of the health funds for partial remittances).
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

Reward participationOffer gift cards, eBooks, study tips, or some other incentive for helping.Test and refineTest out different offers and even different question wording and ordering to learn which has the best response rate, then send more invitations to the offer with the highest response rate.Reward referralsIf offering a reward, increase it for referrals. Include a custom invite link that tracks referrals.
If I receive a health care coverage questionnaire from my current provider, am I required to fill it out?
I can't say whether you would be contractually obligated. It's a very good idea to complete the survey and send it in as the carrier may put claims processing on hold for you until it receives your updated information. This means your providers won't get paid and when they don't get paid it's you they will be looking for.The insurance company sends these questionnaires because when someone has more than one form of insurance the different carriers take on roles • primary, secondary, tertiary, etc. The primary carrier pays first according to the terms of the policy. The secondary company will pay second, but they will only consider what's left after the primary pays.For example, let's say your ER visit was $2000. Your deductible is $1000 with the primary carrier and the primary insurance pays $1000.Your deductible with the secondary insurance is only $500. The secondary carrier is now looking at a bill for $1000. They pay $500.In the end, you paid $500, primary paid $1000, and secondary paid $500.If you only gave the provider information on your secondary insurance, they would be billed that while $2022 (as the ER wouldn't know about your other coverage). The secondary carrier, knowing they're second, will insist it's sent to the primary carrier for payment first.If they don't know there's a primary carrier, this becomes a very different financial situation for them • instead of $500, they pay $1500! That's your full bill less the $500 you pay out of pocket.Not knowing about the primary carrier just cost the secondary insurance an additional $1000.It's for this reason that they keep sending you questionnaires, and for this reason that they could hold off on processing your claims if you don't respond. In the end their goal is to save as much money as possible by making sure that they don't pay anything for which they aren't liable.
My company forgot to take out my fica and Medicare from my paycheck. They amended the W-2 on their own end and paid their portion of the taxes. How do I pay mine during filling?
I doubt that they “forgot.” Plus, there’s no reason for them to amend your W-2 unless they subsequently paid your employee FICA, but that’s more complicated than it may seem.If an employer fails to withhold the employee-FICA tax, the employer remains liable to pay the tax that it should have withheld. But you’re liable for it as well. It’s far easier for the IRS to collect it from the employer • the penalty is 100% of the tax amount, so the IRS will usually take that and apply it as the tax itself, if the employer doesn’t correct it himself first. In that case, you no longer owe the tax, but you owe the employer the amount of the tax (without interest or additional penalty), because he paid your tax on your behalf.Here’s where it gets complicated. Whether and how the employer gets the money back from you is a matter to be settled between the two of you • the IRS has nothing to do with it and, frankly, couldn’t care less. And assuming that we’re not in the same calendar year (which we can’t be), the employer just withholding that amount from your pay may very well violate state laws (depending on your state, obviously, but most would require your consent). In the meantime, the employer’s payment of the employee-FICA that it paid was additional wages to you, and the withholding (income tax and FICA) on that has to be taken from your other paychecks (or else the problem would occur all over again).There is a way in which the employer can get away with very substantially reduced penalties, but that applies only in cases of unintentional misclassification (as an independent contractor), and that’s not what happened to you. First, you were given a W-2, which indicates that you were treated as an employee. Second, you dont say anything about “forgetting” to withhold income tax • and that in and of itself disqualifies the employer from taking advantage of these reduced penalties. (If they withheld income tax, they obviously were not mistakenly treating you as a contractor.)
