Cost of Insuring Workers' Health Increases 11.2%

I don't know that it would really suit me to be a full-time writer as opposed to a teacher-researcher, but the finances of health care are one obstacle to me even contemplating it. I never go to the doctor, but I believe I must have insurance in case of catastrophic accident, and the cost of getting coverage is crazy. (Too lazy to link, but NYTMag had an article in their health issue about two obviously pretty healthy upper-middle-class professionals--journalists who went freelance--who couldn't then get coverage.)
