How to ground skyrocketing
health care costs?
Imagine this scenario. Let's say you knew your
car insurance or grocery bills were increasing at least 15 percent
per year for the next three years. Would you take steps to reduce

use/consumption? Probably. Smart consumers use a variety of techniques
to manage their costs.
