Despite calls for a moratorium on such mandates, state legislatures continue to require that insurance companies cover specific tests and treatments, which leads to increases in employer health premiums.

Example: California recently became the fifth state to add a specific diagnostic test for cervical cancer to the list of covered treatments that must be included in all health insurance policies issued in the state.

A proposal before Congress would allow employers to form health care consortium groups across state lines.

If enacted, the measure would let employers take part in so-called "association health plans," which would be exempt from state mandates such as California's new requirement.
