9/28/04 Healthcare hit the headlines today. Are we worse off than 4 years ago. YESSSS.

Sept. 28, 2004 -- Health insurance prices far outstripped wages over the last four years, leaving Americans with less coverage at a far greater cost, according to a study unveiled Tuesday.

The analysis shows that insurance premiums for the average American worker rose nearly three times as quickly as wages between 2000 and 2004. In 12 states, including election battlegrounds like Michigan and Wisconsin, insurance hikes outpaced wage increases fourfold.

"Working families are paying much more for their health care and they're receiving much less in coverage," says Ron Pollack, president of the nonprofit consumers health group Families USA. "By any measure the American public is worse off today than they were four years ago with respect to health care."

Pollack says his group, which usually supports policies endorsed by more liberal politicians, has taken no position on the upcoming election between President George W. Bush and Sen. John F. Kerry. Still, the study looked specifically at costs since shortly before Bush took office in 2001.

The results show a darkening health-care picture for American consumers. The average worker's share of employer-sponsored health premiums went from $959 in 2000 to $1,303 in 2004, a 36% increase.

More Americans are also facing catastrophic health charges that take up one-quarter or more of their annual earnings. More than 14.3 million Americans carry the high costs today, vs. 11.6 million in 2000. The majority of families with high out-of-pocket health costs have insurance, according to the study, which used data from the Lewin Group research firm.

"The net result of course is that more and more working families are getting priced out of the health care they used to take for granted," says Pollack.

A Broader View

Rising insurance costs have had the effect of squeezing millions of Americans out of their coverage. More than 85 million Americans went without insurance coverage for some period of time over the last two years, up from 73 million in 1999-2000, according to Families USA data. Rising rates of non-insurance can drive health costs up even further as people without coverage seek medical care at expensive emergency rooms and hospitals, he warns.

While not specifically endorsing a candidate, Pollack does say that he favors Kerry's health-care policies over Bush's.

The Consumer Confidence Index fell to 96.8 from a revised reading of 98.7 in August, according to The Conference Board. Analysts had expected a reading of 99.5.
