Healthcare premium rates are now increasing at a faster pace than employee compensation. According to the 2015 Employer Health Benefits Survey conducted by The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation:

  • Average annual premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance (family coverage) was up 4 percent over 2014.
  • Worker contributions to family coverage increased 2.7 percent from 2014 to 2015.
  • Workers’ wages increased just 1.9 percent during the same period.
