Group Healthcare Costs Up, Coverage Down

September 29th, 2012 by JBWK

Two new surveys show the changing role employment-based health insurance may play after the massive federal overhaul of health insurance.

One found that group healthcare costs continued to rise; the other found that employer-based coverage is declining. Interestingly, even though employment-based coverage is dropping, the overall percentage of people insured is rising based on increased public coverage.

We’ll have to wait a few more years to see how the individual mandate–the core of the Supreme Court’s headline decision last year–will impact these numbers.
