Report: Insurance costs for U.S. workers have surged this year - The Hill's Healthwatch

Health insurance costs for the nation's workers skyrocketed this year, even as the quality of many plans deteriorated, according to an independent report released Thursday.

The average worker is now paying roughly $4,000 toward employer-sponsored family healthcare coverage — a jump of $482 (14 percent) above last year's figure, according to the report. By contrast, overall premium costs rose just 3 percent above 2009 levels, researchers found, and employer contributions toward family coverage did not rise at all.
