Pent-Up Demand Expected to Drive Medical Cost Growth

Employer medical costs are expected to rise 8.5 percent in 2012, up from 8 percent in 2011, in part due to pent up demand from those who delayed care during the economic downturn, according to a report published on Wednesday.

Mr. Yun, this musical tribute is for you. I've got to hand it to you. You've got balls.
