Health savings accounts make insurance sense for many
USA Today

Even if you eat lots of leafy greens, exercise daily and have replaced your evening highball with a cup of herbal tea, you’re almost certainly going to pay more for health care next year. In 2011, the average premium for employer-provided health insurance will increase nearly 9%, according to Aon Hewitt. Hewitt estimates that the average worker’s contribution to the premium will rise 12.4% to $2,209. The average worker’s out-of-pocket costs, such as co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles, will rise 12.6% to $2,177.
