Healthcare Costs Are Crippling North Carolina's Economy
Is healthcare killing your budget? For too many North Carolinians, the answer is yes. According to some estimates, North Carolina’s average healthcare premiums have increased almost 30% since 2015. That’s a scary prospect, especially given some estimates place the average North Carolina family’s premiums at almost $5,000 per year in 2015 — almost 10% of our state’s median household income that year. And don’t even get us started on the rising costs of deductibles and copayments.
