Premiums paid by workers covered by their companies' health plans have risen only modestly over the last five years, but workers who get sick are still facing higher deductibles that now affect far more people, a survey out Wednesday shows.
More than 80% of employees now have to pay an average of $1,478 before their health insurance covers the bulk of the cost for health care — up from just over half of workers in 2006, says the survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust.
