Employer-Sponsored Health Care Costs Rose Steadily Over the Past Decade

In 2019, people with employer-sponsored health plans spent 11.5% of their median household income on premiums and deductibles, compared to 9.1% in 2010, according to a recent study published by The Commonwealth Fund. The number of states where 10% or more of employees’ median income was spent on premiums and deductibles rose to 37 in 2019, up from 10 in 2010. On average, people in states where the median income is lower than national median income face higher health care costs.
