Ummmm, yeah, we're also going to need you to go ahead and buy health insurance.
That may sound like a line by the passive-aggressive boss Bill Lumbergh out of the cult movie "Office Space," but it's in fact what some companies are telling employees: either enroll in job-based health coverage or take a hike.

Kaiser Health News, in a story published Tuesday, noted that some employers are demanding that their workers buy the firm's health plans and they are deducting the monthly costs from their paycheck "whether they want to or not."
The story notes that under the Affordable Care Act, "employers with 100 or more full-time workers can enroll them in company coverage without their say so as long as the plan is affordable and adequate. That means the employee contribution is no more than 9.5 percent of the federal poverty guideline and the plan pays for at least 60 percent of covered medical expenses, on average."
But Obamacare doesn't require companies to make workers do so.
