Health-care premiums for employers are rising again — and the culprit seems to be excessive cost-cutting. Those are the findings of a recent study by Hewitt Associates of 350 large employers. According to the Lincolnshire, Ill.-based human resources consulting group, the rate of increase in premiums paid by employers for 2008 is likely to rise by 8.7%. That’s compared to a slow but steady drop in the rate of increase from 2005 at 9.2% to 2007 at 5.3%.
