A new study shows Californians paid more for health insurance from their employers in 2003 than workers in any other state.
The study released yesterday shows insurance premiums rose 15.8 percent last year. That´s the biggest increase in four years and the study shows employers passed the higher costs on to workers.
Nationally insurance premiums increased by an average of 13.9 percent during the year.
The joint study was released by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research and Educational Trust.
