The typical employee will pay almost $4,000 for family health coverage, up $482 from 2009, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust said in the report. Total family coverage premiums, which include company contributions, increased just 3% from a year earlier to $13,770.
More than one in four workers have annual deductibles of at least $1,000, and almost half of those who work for companies with fewer than 200 employees have deductibles that high, the report said.
