Healthcare costs rise faster than wages
Health insurance costs for the average family have risen more than five times faster than incomes in the last decade, according to a new study from Commonwealth Fund. The Commonwealth Fund, a privately funded, New York-based health research clearinghouse, looked at premiums across the conutry and found the average cost of a family health insurance plan is just above $15,000—up 62 percent since 2003. Median family income rose only 11 percent during the same time period, the report said.
