Is this the end of health insurers?
The Washington Post
In 2012, MedStar Health, like many large employers, struggled to keep up with rapidly rising healthcare costs. For three years, the company held down premiums for its 19,000 employees by absorbing the increases itself. Most employers would have had no choice but to raise premiums — in this case, by about $550 for a family — and cope with frustrated employees. MedStar, one of the Washington area's largest health systems, saw another option.

Urology Times
The risk of cancer is slightly elevated in patients who undergo computed tomography scans, according to the authors of an international study, who reported that incidence was significantly increased for urinary tract cancer and six other solid tumors. While risk of any cancer linked to CT is low, reducing the radiation dose would lead to a long-term reduction in cancer incidence, said John D. Mathews, MBBS, M.D., Ph.D., the study's lead author from the University of Melbourne, Australia.
