Employer health rates rise 3%, worker deductibles top $1,200

http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-employer-health-costs-20140910-story.html


The price of employer health insurance rose a modest 3% this year, a major survey shows, but workers will be paying more when they get sick as deductibles soar.

Annual insurance premiums for families increased 3%, on average, to $16,834, according to the survey released Wednesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust.

Those results reflect a recent trend of slower growth in healthcare costs. But many employers and health-policy experts predict bigger increases for 2015 and beyond as the economy recovers.

1. Got to thank the Max and his girl friend for this one.

We knew this would happen. Baucus and his gal pal greased the skids with major insurance companies in order to get them to back off on their demands against ACA. But,hey,if you live in Libby,Mt. Free health care.
