Health Insurance Rates Going Through The Roof

It’s no secret health insurance costs here in Virginia are skyrocketing. As higher premiums and larger out of pocket deductibles are reaching deeper into our pockets, many of our paychecks are not keeping up to pay for it. From 2008 to 2022, private insurance premiums and deductibles for both individuals and families increased by a staggering 89.1%. Between just 2015 and 2022, they went up 31.2% and 26.2%, respectively.
