Inside the high-deductible insurance revolution that is transforming U.S. healthcare

The Times is publishing a series of stories examining the steep run-up in health insurance deductibles over the last decade and the effect this is having on American patients. This healthcare revolution has been largely overshadowed by the fierce political fight over the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. But it has affected many more people and is pushing increasing numbers of American families to the breaking point, stoking an affordability crisis. The series draws on a nationwide survey of Americans with job-based coverage undertaken in partnership with the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation, or KFF, as well as original research conducted with the Health Care Cost Institute and the Employee Benefit Research Institute, two Washington, D.C.,-based think tanks.
