The numbers I quoted were for single coverage, but I suspect it may have been per employee regardless.

Median group rates for a family of four is pretty readily available info every year. But if you are retired early with health insurance, your employer subsidizes the numbers. That makes planning more difficult.

But as intercst points out, if Obamacare moderates these numbers, that would be great.

Controlling the rate of growth of health care costs has to be a priority for the very reasons you outline.
