Group health insurance premiums rose modestly this year, according to a survey released Sept. 11 by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The survey of more than 2,000 employers found that the premium for family coverage rose an average of 4 percent, increasing to $15,745 this year.

“Four percent is a low increase. It is good news,” said Drew Altman, president and CEO of the Kaiser Family Foundation in Washington.
