The cost of Healthcare for a U.S. family surpasses the price tags of some new cars, Axios is reporting.

The website, citing figures from the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker, said healthcare for a family covered by a large employer cost an average $22,885 last year.

It noted that was $2,000 more than the list price for a brand-new Volkswagen Beetle. It is also more than a Hyundai Sonata ($22,050).

The healthcare costs break down like this: About $15,000 comes from employers’ contributions. Workers kick in an average of $4,706 per year and spend another $3,020 in out of pocket expenses.

Axios noted that the costs are starting to inch up toward the least expensive Cadillac.
