'Hidden Health Tax' for Family Health Care Coverage Climbed to $1,017 in 2008
Date:5/28/2009

an and CEO of Aetna Inc. "Covering the uninsured will lighten the burden of the hidden tax on those who have coverage today," he continued. "While doing so, we also must focus on other reforms to improve value and quality in health care."

"This research shows that the market in which we buy our healthcare is filled with cross-subsidies, making it dysfunctional and unsustainable," said Dan Danner, president and CEO, National Federation of Independent Business. "Until individuals understand how much they are really paying for their healthcare, costs cannot be brought under control. Until costs are addressed, we will continue to struggle with coverage."

The data for the report were based on the federal Medical Expenditures Panel Survey as well as other federal and private data sources. For a full description of the methodology used to array the numbers in the report, see the Technical Appendix to the report.

Families USA is the national organization for health care consumers. It is nonprofit and nonpartisan, and its mission is to secure high-quality, affordable health coverage and care for all Americans.
