Have your health insurance premiums gone up this year? If so, you're not alone. Premiums for employer-sponsored coverage rose 4% on average, a new study shows, and they are likely to rise even more next year.
The annual tab for families has risen to $15,745, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust. Employers picked up most of that, but the average worker still paid $4,316, or 27%, of the total bill.
