(UNDATED) - Medical officials say the state's fitness crisis could lead to a big jump in insurance premiums in 2007.

A consulting firm says rates for HMO's and PPO's will likely increase between 9% to 11% in the coming year. That could mean doubling the standard deductible on many accounts from $250 to $500.

Insurance adjusters say more people are using their policies, which makes it more expensive for insurers, which must pay hospitals for those claims.
