Bay State health insurance premiums highest in country
Rein in health costs, Massachusetts urged

Massachusetts has the most expensive family health insurance premiums
in the country, according to a new analysis that highlights the
state’s challenge in trying to rein in medical costs after passage of
a landmark 2006 law that mandated coverage for nearly everyone.

The report by the Commonwealth Fund, a nonprofit health care
foundation, showed that the average family premium for plans offered
by employers in Massachusetts was $13,788 in 2008, 40 percent higher
than in 2003. Over the same period, premiums nationwide rose an
average of 33 percent.
