Health premiums rise
A report released today shows that annual premiums for employer-sponsored family health coverage climbed 4% in 2012, to $15,745. Workers on average paid $4,316 toward the cost of their coverage, according to a press release from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The increase in premiums from 2011 to 2012 is moderate by historical standards, according to the release, but outpaced the growth in workers' wages and general inflation.
Among other things, the employer survey found that workers at lower-wage firms on average pay $1,000 more each year out of their paychecks for family coverage than workers at higher-wage firms.
