Do You Feel Your Employer's Health Benefits Are Amazing?
The cost of employer-provided health insurance is approaching $19,000 a year for a family plan. Workers pay an average of $5,714 towards the cost of their coverage.
The annual survey by Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Education Trust surveyed employers to get a "...detailed look at trends in employer-sponsored health coverage including premiums, employee contributions, cost-sharing provisions, and employer practices." The cost is generally divided between the employer and workers, but varies among companies.
