ABSTRACT
The article encourages employers to invest in educating workers on health care issues. If health care costs are moderating, as a recent study of health maintenance organizations suggests, that's good news for employers and their workers. But there's a lot more to consider. For starters, health care benefit costs are still increasing. To remedy this trend, communicating the value of benefit programs and rewarding healthy behaviors are keys.
