COMPANIES CHIP AWAY AT HEALTH BENEFITS

Companies’ health care costs in 2015 rose at the lowest rate in at least 20 years, a report out Thursday shows, but workers’ share of costs continue to skyrocket. The average health care rate increase for midsized and large companies was 3.2% this year, the lowest since the consulting firm Aon started trading it in 1996. Despite this, the average amount workers have to contribute toward their health care is up more than 134% over the past decade, and that trend will accelerate, as reported by USA Today.
