Financial morons - the lot of them.

That can't be right. There is no way that the average family insurance premium is $1,667 a month. That is not possible. I've never known anyone to have family premiums over even half of that. Most places I've worked or my wife has worked typically had family premiums of around $400-$600 per month. Mine is currently $0, since my company pays for all insurance, though.

I've seen some programs where it was as high as $800 for a family - but twice that?

I'm calling bullshit.

I think this is the original article I saw it from:

"Premiums surpassed $20,000 on average for families with employer health insurance coverage, according to the annual Kaiser Family Foundation employee health benefits survey". So "employer health insurance coverage" is the distinction in regards to the average.
