Health insurance costs to spike an average 8%
Sixty percent of federal employees will see their healthcare premiums balloon by nearly 13% next year, with the average increase for all federal workers about almost 8% in 2009. These figures are a sharp increase over the 2.9% and 2.3% over the past two years. An official pointed to increased costs of services and previous healthcare costs estimates being too low as the reasons for the spike.
