WHICH IS HOW YOU CONTAIN COSTS:

Employees pay more out of pocket for health care (Ben Rooney, November 13, 2014, CNNMoney)

In 2015, employees will pay 55% more for health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical bills than they did in 2010, according to a report Thursday from human resources company Aon Hewitt.

The average worker with employer-sponsored health insurance will pay about $2,664, or nearly 24% of the total cost of their plan next year. Five years ago, employees paid $1,835, which worked out to 22.3% of the total premium payment.

We need to get that number much higher, which is what HSAs do.
