Newly released data from the Kaiser Family Foundation show out-of-pocket costs for patients with employer-sponsored health insurance rose faster than the costs paid by their insurers between 2006 and 2016. Over this decade, the total amount patients spent out of pocket grew, on average, from $525 to $806. That increase of 54 percent is higher than the increase in payments by health insurers, which rose 48 percent, on average, over the same time period (from $3,182 to $4,724).
