Employer health rates rise 3%, worker deductibles top $1,200 [View all]

The price of employer health insurance rose a modest 3% this year, a major survey shows, but workers will be paying more when they get sick as deductibles soar.

Annual insurance premiums for families increased 3%, on average, to $16,834, according to the survey released Wednesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust.

Those results reflect a recent trend of slower growth in healthcare costs. But many employers and health-policy experts predict bigger increases for 2015 and beyond as the economy recovers.
