Health insurance premiums rose 5% this year as coverage gets skimpier, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust. Overall, premiums increased to $12,680 for coverage of a family of four and premiums for single coverage increased to $4,704. The 5% increase was comparable to last year's jump.
