Health Insurance Premiums Possibly Raising Again

Last updated on Friday, August 21, 2009

(UNDATED) - Your health insurance premiums could be going up again next year.

A new report from the Pricewaterhousecoopers' Health Research Institute says 42% of employers surveyed said they would increase the share of the premium their workers pay in 2010.

That's up from 38% last year.

By 2008, the average cost of an employer sponsored health plan for an Indiana family was over 13-thousand dollars.

That is double of what it was in 2000 and a 45% increase in the last five years alone.
