Mandi Woodruff has an informative article on businessinsider.com about the continued rising costs of health care vs the wage increases and inflation.

According to a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation, the average annual premium for families and individuals increased to $16,351 and $5,884, respectively, in 2013. Both costs have risen more than twice as fast as wage growth (1.8%) and four times as fast as inflation (1.1%).
