California Health Insurance Premiums Double in 7 Years

The National Underwriter reports that between 2002 and 2009, health care premiums in California rose almost 118%, a new study by the California HealthCare Foundation finds.  In the same period, California’s overall inflation rate increased 23%.  Single coverage premiums in California cost $5,133 annually in 2009, while premiums for family coverage were $13,525.

The survey also concluded that 73% of California employers offer health care coverage, compared to 60% of employers around the U.S.

So, what does all of this mean? Californians are paying more for less coverage.  Is health insurance reform needed?  You be the judge.
