Battling rising insurance costs in Washington and closer to home

The World

Later this afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services is expected to release a report criticizing insurance companies for their dramatically increasing insurance premiums.

Our Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich has analyzed the report and he discusses its findings and its potential solutions for consumers. We also speak with John Brown who owns a small business in Oklahoma. John’s been dealing with rising costs of insurance for himself and his wife and says that he doesn’t know how he can afford to keep insurance in the face of steadily rising rates.
