The major cost issues in employer-based insurance: Bigger deductibles and slow income growth

Share this:


The Commonwealth Fund has compared  cost growth in employer health-insurance coverage during the five years before and the five years after 2010, when the Affordable Care Act was enacted, and looked at changes in workers’ incomes over that time.

The employer-based insurance-cost growth report found premium rises for single health-insurance policies slowed post-ACA enactment overall nationally, and specifically in 33 states and Washington, D.C.

The big problems, the researchers found, was the big rise in deductibles and very slow income growth that failed to keep up with insurance-cost growth.
