Study Indicates Americans Are Spending A Growing Share Of Their Salaries On Medical Costs.

By admin

The Washington Post (10/26, Johnson) reports a new study suggests that “the growth in employees’ share of health-care premiums and deductibles has slowed over the past decade, but their incomes have lagged behind.” According to a Commonwealth Fund study, “families that receive insurance through their employer spent, on average, 6.5 percent of their income on premiums and deductibles in 2006” compared to 10.1 percent in 2015. The finding “comes amid intense scrutiny of rising premiums in” the ACA marketplaces. The study “suggests the root cause for that growing pressure is because incomes haven’t grown as fast as health-care costs.”
