From the press release:
The good news, according to preliminary survey findings released today by Mercer Health & Benefits, is that health benefit cost growth will increase only slightly in 2008. But three years of flat growth around 6% each year had raised hopes that the health benefit cost trend would begin to drop down toward average wage and CPI trends. The bad news is that it remains about twice as high.
