Michigan health costs rise fastest
The cost of workplace health insurance plans for Michigan families rose much faster than wages, giving the state the worst rating in the nation, according to a report from Families USA. Also, Michigan workers paid proportionately more than employers, often for less comprehensive coverage, according to the report. The statistics show that "the whole system is being stretched" and "another cause to look at the impending collapse of the whole healthcare system," said Rep. John Dingell, D-MI.
