I think this is eminently fair and reasonable. I suspect that health insurance costs will probably go up for all of us due to Covid but this will help somewhat to reduce that rise in premiums.
"Nationwide -- between June and August 2021 -- 98.6% of people hospitalized with COVID-19 were unvaccinated, resulting in $5.7 billion in preventable hospital costs, according to one KFF study.
And, those costs may soon be passed along to employees in the form of increased health care premiums.
Delta Airlines, for example, recently announced that unvaccinated workers will have to pay an extra $200 per month for health insurance.
“Some companies are coming out with a mandate that says 'if you don't get vaccinated you get fired, you lose your job.' The other companies, like Delta, have had a somewhat softer approach where they say, 'if you don't get vaccinated you can still keep your job but you have to submit to regular testing, and you also have to pay a higher premium each month for your health insurance,'” said Cox.
The average cost of a COVID hospital stay is $20,000, according to the KFF report, and the costs greatly increase if a patient is admitted to the ICU."
