In 2015, employees will pay 55% more for health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical bills than they did in 2010, according to a report Thursday from human resources company Aon Hewitt.
The average worker with employer-sponsored health insurance will pay about $2,664, or nearly 24% of the total cost of their plan next year. Five years ago, employees paid $1,835, which worked out to 22.3% of the total premium payment.
What’s more, employees will pay an average of $2,487 in out-of-pocket costs, such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles next year. That’s nearly double what employees paid in 2009, when those costs amounted to $1,276.
