Californians’ costs for employer-based health insurance soar
Los Angeles Times

Working Californians have seen the cost of their employer-based health insurance shoot up about 40% over the last six years, but they may be surprised to find that workers in many other states fared even worse.

The average cost for an employer to provide its workers with family coverage reached $12,631 in the Golden State last year. That put California below the national average of $13,027, according to a new study that found higher prices in Florida, Connecticut, Illinois and more than two dozen other states.
