Health Insurance Premiums Jumped in 2023

In 2023, the average total annual premium for employer-sponsored health insurance coverage was $8,435 for single coverage and $23,968 for family coverage, with average worker contributions of $1,401 and $6,575, respectively. Total premiums for both types of coverage increased a little more than 6.5% over 2022, the highest annual increase since 2011. The increase in worker contributions was 5.6% for single coverage and 7.7% for family coverage, the highest since 2017 and 2019, respectively.

On average, the pace of premium increases has slowed over the last 10 years. The big jumps in 2023 may reflect the cumulative effect of high general inflation in 2021 and 2022, because premiums are typically set before the beginning of the year.
