    talk about the cost of people not having health insurance?  People lacking access to preventative care, until they get so sick they have to go the emergency room, running up bills that they can't pay, so that these costs are borne by the rest of society?

    No? Didn't think so.

      Those employees who for some reason do not take advantage of the company healthcare plan probably do need healthcare at some point,and where do they get it?

        insurance are already covered by their spouse's insurance--and unless their spouse is with UPS, that is unlikely to change and impact Delta's costs.

        Some people fight fire with fire. Professionals use water.
