Coming Our Way!

Get ready! Recent headline from the Denver Post:

"Health Plans' Tab to Soar."

Stats from the story (premium increases from employers to cover additional health care costs):

60% - Increase employee premium for family coverage.
57% - Increase employee premium for individual coverage.
50% - Increase deductibles.
29% - Increase employee maximum out-of-pocket expenses.

Be prepared now for more of your income going to copays and out-of-pockets.
