The good news is that employer rate increases for large group plans increased by only 3.3% for 2013. The 2012 rate increase was 4.9% and 8.5% in 2011.

The bad news is that the employee share of costs have increased from $2,011 in 2004 to an expected $4, 969 in 2014, according to AON Hewitt.  Remember, while expensive, an employer’s cost-share of health coverage costs is tax-deductible, while not usually to individuals and families.

AON Hewitt released its’ annual analysis of health coverage costs on October 17, 2013.
