Health Insurance Costs Continue to Grow

Can you afford to provide health-care for your employees?  As health-care costs continue to rise to record highs more and more employers cannot.

Over the past year the cost of providing health insurance spiked 9%.  The Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Educational Trust 2011 Employer Health Benefits Survey, released last week, found the average cost of family health-care coverage is now $15,073.  The survey reported that employers end up paying $10,944 of that cost.

“This year’s 9% increase in premiums is especially painful for workers and employers struggling through a weak recovery,” said Kaiser President and CEO Drew Altman, Ph.D.

The cost of providing employees with health-care is higher than ever.  With the poor economy many employers struggle to or cannot continue to offer health insurance.  Are you still providing your employees with health benefits?
