wsj<>GE Feels Its Own Cuts--As Employees Foot Bigger Share of Health Bills, Use of Medical Imaging Declines


A plan by General Electric (GE) to put 85K workers on a high-deductible health care plan in order to lowers its mult-billion dollar health costs falls in line with the trend of other major corporations, but not without a painful side effect.

By at least one estimate, spending on advanced imaging fell 28% over the last five years as more families are forced to cover the costs of the expensive service.
