What inflation? Healthcare costs just went up 39%

A good friend told me last week her healthcare insurer informed her that her premiums will increase 39%. This article confirms it.

Yet, official government statistics insist the Consumer Price Index ("CPI") is only 2.7%, excluding food and energy costs--since they are "too volatile" to track in the CPI. How convenient.
