Here’s today’s Question of the Day:
How much did your health insurance premiums go up this year over last year?
Our premium went up 9.07% over last year. The trend over the last ten years was much higher, as you can see from this graphic:
I’m not sure what happened in 2008 to cause premiums to jump over 100%. I’m just thankful my wife’s company pays 80% of the premium. I don’t know how long that will continue but I’m thankful for it while we have it.
What about you? What kind of premium increases are you seeing?
