Health costs to see hefty jump in Nashville area

The Tennessean, September 2, 2008

With companies facing challenges from a U.S. economic downturn, they're under more pressure to rein in expenses, prompting some companies to pass on more of the costs to their employees, change the mix of insurance offerings, or give employees incentives to live healthier lifestyles.
