Health Insurance Premiums

Health Insurance: Premiums and Increases

Updated March 2014

The increased cost of health insurance is a central fact in any discussion of health policy and health delivery.  As annual premiums edged beyond $16,000 for an average family, costs are blamed for rising uninsured and "under-insurance."  For those Americans who are fully-covered, these cost realities affect employers, both large and small, not to mention the "pocket-book impact" on ordinary families.

Health Insurance Marketplace (Exchange) Premiums for 2014 - Released by HHS September 25, 2013. 
This report summarizes the health plan choices and premiums that will be available in the Health Insurance Marketplace. It contains new information, current as of September 18, 2013, on qualified health plans in the 36 states in which the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will support or fully run the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2014. [NCSL Note: this omits all 14 state-run exchanges.] Plan data is in final stages but is still under review as of September 18 and may be revised in HHS systems before being displayed for consumers, so this information is subject to change. This analysis also includes similar information that is publicly available from 11 states and the District of Columbia that are implementing their own Marketplace. This report focuses on the plans with the lowest premiums in each state, as consumers are expected to shop for low-cost plans. Nearly all consumers (about 95%) will have a choice of 2 or more health insurance issuers (often many more) and nearly all consumers (about 95%) live in states with average premiums below earlier estimates.  Online Printer friendly version in PDF format (15 pages).

The Cost of Spousal Health Coverage” 

A January 2014 study, examines what can happen when companies looking to save health costs in 2014 require working spouses to get health insurance through their own employer.  Authors find the move has some unexpected consequences, according to a new study by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI).

The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires that employers with 50 or more workers provide health coverage to workers and dependent children until they reach age 26. It does not, however, require employers to provide health coverage to spouses, whether or not they are eligible for other health insurance. In 2011, primary health insurance policyholders spent an average of $5,430 on health care services, compared with $6,609 for spouses. This can make them a target for employers looking to control their health benefit costs. [Full report online, 7pp, PDF]

2013 Employer Health Benefits Survey released

Annual premiums for employer-sponsored family health coverage reached $16,351 this year, up 4 percent from last year, with workers on average paying $4,565 toward the cost of their coverage, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET). During the same period, workers' wages and general inflation were up 1.8 percent and 1.1 percent respectively.  This year's rise in premiums remains moderate by historical standards. Since 2003, premiums have increased 80 percent, nearly three times as fast as wages (31 percent) and inflation (27 percent).  "We are in a prolonged period of moderation in premiums, which should create some breathing room for the private sector to try to reduce costs without cutting back benefits for workers," Kaiser President and CEO Drew Altman, Ph.D., said.  Released Aug. 20, 2013. SEE: 2013 Employer Health Benefits Survey.

For 2012, the previous report, annual premiums for employer-sponsored family health coverage reached $15,745, up 4 percent from 2010, with workers on average paying $4,316 toward the cost of their coverage.  A single or Individual employee's coverage cost $5,615, with the worker on average paying $951 out-of-pocket. > See 2012 Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey (EHBS).
 

Background and History
While the overall rate of uninsured Americans has increased in recent years, the percentage of workers offered health insurance and the percentage of workers taking coverage when it was offered have remained relatively steady since the late 1980s, according to a study published in mid-2007 by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI).  The best 50 state-specific information is provided by AHRQ, in a 30 page compilation titled "Private-Sector Data Premium, Contribution, and Cost Distributions." NCSL has excerpted key items, using years 2008, 2009 and 2010 below.

State by State, 2004-2006

Many organizations and agencies have reported health premiums over the years. However, state-by-state current data is scarce, and no federal agency releases such figures on an annual basis.
 
For 2007, the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress released an updated tally of actual premium payments, contained within State by State Economic Snapshots: May 2007, online at http://jec.senate.gov.  Their report indicated an average annual increase of 8.8% during 2004 to 2006.
