Large employers are projecting that health care costs for each worker they employ will rise to $14,156 next year, according to a survey from the National Business Group on Health.
This year those health care costs, which include premiums and out-of-pocket costs for medical and pharmacy benefits, totaled $13,482 per employee, which means next year they will rise roughly 5 percent.
Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute, says that unlike these workers, Americans who purchase plans through Obamacare’s exchanges won’t be so lucky.
“They can expect their premiums to skyrocket by 25 percent or more in 2018,” Pipes said.
