5/15/2014: Employer Health Costs to Rise Nearly 9% This Year (Los Angeles Times)
"[C]osts for preferred-provider organization [PPO] plans are expected to rise 8.7% this year. That's down from 9% last year. HMO plans should increase 8.6%, down just slightly from the previous year ... For 2013, the average total cost for a family health plan rose 4% to $16,351 ... The typical employee's share of that premium was $4,565, up about 6% from 2012. But the employer's share of the premium increased just 3%, a further sign that employers continue to shift more medical costs onto their workers."
