Workers are complaining over the rising cost of health insurance policy which is increasing at a rate of six to eight times faster than their own salary. With this trend, almost one out of five employees is not insured due to this expensive government health program.
According to a study released by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the state of the private health insurance is continuously deterioration for the past couple of years, adding that recession has aggravated this problem.
In an interview with State Health Access Data Assistance Center director Lynn Blewett, she said that more workers are uninsured today compared to the mid 90s where only one in every seven workers has no health insurance.
Today, nearly 27 million workers are not insured, an increase of more than 6 million people compared to the mid 90s which has 20.7 million uninsured employees.
Meanwhile, there are eight states which have 20 percent of its workforce uninsured, but today, the study has found there are now 14 states which suffered from the deteriorating health insurance.
The study also said that more Americans are facing higher risk of being uninsured due to continuous rise of health premiums, adding that government should implement a policy that will make it easier for wage-earners to pay for their health insurance.
