Press Release Summary: Proposed federal mandates in H.R. 1424 on health insurance offered by employers may drive up the cost of premiums and cause small companies to reduce or eliminate health insurance benefits.
Press Release Body: Orem, Utah - ZYTO Corp. (Pink Sheets: ZYTC) is concerned about pending legislation that may increase health insurance premiums and force small companies to drop benefits.
ZYTO (tm) technology is used by health care professionals to make decisions on the health care needs of their clients and patients.

ZYTO technology has been used for over 150,000 wellness scans. The company has a web site at http://www.ZYTO.com
"The use of ZYTO technology can lower many health and wellness costs, so naturally we are concerned about government mandates that could raise premiums. We encourage lawmakers to consider ways to reduce insurance premiums and make health and wellness services more affordable," said Dr. Vaughn R. Cook, company founder, president and C.E.O.
The Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act (H.R. 1424) is under consideration in Congress. The bill mandates that health insurance coverage include a large number of mental disorders.
"Mental health care is a serious issue that deserves more attention, however employers should have an option to provide health plans of various coverages including nutraceutical solutions. This approach could significantly reduce costs and make insurance more affordable," said Cook.
Increased premiums will cause expense to both employers and employees who already believe premiums are too high.
"We hope business owners, managers, and concerned employees will make their views known to their members of Congress by calling the Capitol Hill switchboard at 202-224-3121," said Cook.
