According to a new study released from Hewitt Associates, the average total health care premium per employee for large companies will increase from $8,607 in 2009 to $9,120 in 2010. The amount employees will be asked to contribute toward this cost is $2,085, or 23 percent of the total health care premium. This is up 10 percent from 2009, when employees contributed $1,890, or 22 percent of the total health care premium. Average employee out-of-pocket costs, such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles, are expected to increase to $1,938 in 2010, also up 10 percent from $1,766 in 2009.
