    Questionable management

    Rather than slash and burn its employees by eliminating their medical benefits, why doesn't management take a more proactive approach to controlling its medical costs? Start telling doctors which tests to use to lower WAG's medical costs. As an example, Microvolt T-Wave Alternans (MTWA) can non-invasively determine who is susceptible to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (Mr. Gandolfini, of 'The Sopranos' fame, died from it recently). It was FDA approved more than a decade ago but doctors and hospitals won't use it because they have a conflict of interest: they make much more money using invasive electrophysiology (EP). EP costs nearly $9,000 while MTWA costs a few hundred dollars. NASA uses MTWA on astronauts. Do you think NASA is going to use a two-bit test on people its sends into space? For more information about MTWA G*O*O*G*L*E those letters.
