Average premiums for job-based family health coverage are up just 3 percent this year, while the cost of single coverage rose only 2 percent, continuing a sustained trend of moderate growth in insurance costs, according to a nationwide survey of more than 2,000 businesses.

The slowdown in premium growth is good news for the estimated 150 million Americans with employer-sponsored health coverage.
