Family premiums for company health insurance top $13,000 this year
For those of us who get family health insurance at work, our bosses paid an average of $9,800 for it this year, while we paid $3,500 from our own pockets.
That's according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which said the total premiums surpassed $13,000 for the first time.
That's up a whopping 131 percent since 1999.
Coverage for singles has more than doubled, too.
