Email

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.

The average premium is $4,800 this year.
