The graph below was created using Google’s charting tools.
The vertical bar graph shows the distribution of annual premiums paid by workers with only single coverage in 2011.
The data in the graph was taken from the Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research & Educational Trust‘s 2011 Annual Survey entitled “Employer Health Benefits”.
Data on the graph, and in the survey, should be of interest to companies to compare (benchmark) their health benefit offerings to other companies.
The survey can be accessed by clicking here (PDF file).
The graph shows that a large range of premiums are paid for single coverage from less than $2,000 to more than $9,000 per year. Most premiums paid are in the $4,000 to $7,000 range.
