Below are images of the Key Findings and Executive Summary. You can click on the link above for the full document. Click on images for a larger view.
...by 2019 the cost of single coverage is expected to increase by $1,000 more than it would under the current system and the cost of family coverage is expected to increase by $4,000 more than it would under the current system. This amounts to an additional 18 percent increase in the cost of health insurance coverage by 2019. [page 19]
