The National Business Group on Health released an online guide to help employers determine which preventive medical services to cover. The guide discusses 46 preventive services, such as aspirin therapy to prevent heart disease and screening for depression, and the evidence that supports their use. It was developed with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the business group, researchers estimate that 75% of all healthcare costs are directly related to preventable chronic conditions. Read the guide. -- by Matthew DoBias
