Health Insurance Premiums Resource Page

As the rapid rise of health insurance premiums becomes a focus of the health care reform debate, we have put together a resource page of Commonwealth Fund research to provide background on this topic. Resources include: a report showing that nationally family premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance increased 119 percent between 1999 and 2008, and could increase another 94 percent by 2020, to an average $23,842 per family; a blog post by Commonwealth Fund President Karen Davis, Why Health Reform Must Counter the Rising Costs of Health Insurance Premiums; and a study analyzing high out-of-pocket expenses and premiums for working-age adults with chronic conditions.
