Employers and workers together are spending close to $20,000 for family health insurance coverage in 2018
That's $796 every 2 weeks and we still have those saying we can't afford UHC? I wish employers quit contributing all together and we'll see how long it takes to get it. you want to know why your wages aren't higher? It's because your employer has to pay an additional $14,000 /yr to cover you.Companies pick up most of the tab, shelling out $14,100 a year, on average. Still, workers have to pay an average of $5,550, up 65% from a decade ago.
For single coverage, total premiums have reached $6,900, on average, up 47% from 2008. Workers contribute roughly $1,200 a year.
Getting health insurance through work now costs nearly $20,000
