Welcome to BenefitsPRO weekly roundup! Catch up with some of this week's headlines that we didn't cover.

Now, the gap between the wealthy and not-so-wealthy isn't just about money, but also about longevity and overall health. As it stands, fierce battles are being waged over universal coverage and the cost of health care is only going up — does this leave us with another classist division or an opportunity for change? Will the divide continue to grow or will we build a bridge? Sound off in the comments.
