How Much is that Free Healthcare Costing Your Plan?

As Kelly Kennedy in USA Today writes: 

A new report shows costs vary as much as 700% for some preventive examinations, and as the federal health care law increases demand for those procedures, it can mean an increase in premiums if employees don't pay attention to those costs.

So how many of us think we have employees who are going to shop around to get the best price for these "free" services? [Yes, it was impossible for me to keep a straight face as I typed that.]
