Insurance premiums up

Health care premiums for Iowans are rising at a staggering rate, compared to what we earn.

A new Iowa report shows from 2000 to 2007, health care premiums rose almost four times faster than earnings.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa businesses are beginning to cope with insurance premium increases, by passing them onto their employees or customers.
