WSJ: 20 companies band to lower healthcare costs

A total of 20 major companies, ranging from American Express to Verizon, have banded together to help manage employer-borne healthcare costs, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. "Health care is one of the things that employees need and want," noted Marc Reed, chief administrative officer of Verizon. "What we're trying to do is to make this sustainable so that kind of coverage can continue." Alas, the group may have missed an opportunity by not including a single pharmacy provider - retail pharmacy is the one industry already schooled on how to reduce health costs through better adherence and improved outcomes.
