WW 2 is the reason why we have employer paid medical insurance plans.  During WW2   wages were frozen by law and the only way employers could attract employees   was not by higher wages,  but by offering benefits as a non-cash kind of salary inducement.  A bonus as it were.  That is how Blue-Cross and Blue-Shield became the major players  they became.
