PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE COULD COST $30K IN 20019

Kaiser Family Foundation - If we assume that premium increases over the next ten years will average what they did over the last five (about 6.1% per year), the average premium for a family policy in 2019 will be $24,180. That's a big number. On the other hand, if we assume increases revert to the average of the last ten years-an average annual increase of about 8.7% and a very plausible scenario-premiums in 2019 will average a whopping $30,803, a very scary number.
