"UHR scrutinizes health care costs"
"Like other employers nationwide, Oakland University is among those facing large increases in the cost of health insurance and other benefits. OU is projecting double-digit increases in the cost of health care benefits in 2004. The surge in costs also comes at a time when state appropriations to Michigan universities have been cut. While this trend is expected to continue, the university and its many employee groups continually explore ways to contain and reduce costs without shifting the entire burden onto its employees."
