MADISON, Wis. -A new report says Wisconsin's state employee health insurance plan is on of the riches in the country and also pay among the highest premiums for that coverage.
The Pew Charitable Trusts released the report Tuesday. It comes as states are looking at ways to control growing public health insurance costs.
State health plans nationwide paid 92 percent of a typical enrollee's health care costs last year. In Wisconsin, that was 97 percent. Only Connecticut had a higher actuarial value at 98 percent.
The plan most people buy under the federal health care law paid just 70 percent of health care costs, while private employer plans are generally around 80 percent.
The average total premium per Wisconsin public worker was $1,331 in 2013, making it the fourth highest nationwide.
