U.S. HEALTHCARE SELECTED BY GENERAL ELECTRIC AS ITS HEALTHCARE PREFERRED PARTNER IN THE DELAWARE VALLEY

 BLUE BELL, Pa., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- General Electric (NYSE: GE) has chosen U.S. Healthcare (NASDAQ-NMS: USHC), one of the nation's leading providers of managed health care services, to manage its "Health Care Pe?rred" program.
 The plan will provide health care management for GE employees and eligible retirees in southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and Delaware.
 "We chose U.S. Healthcare because of its successful track record in managed care and its ability to meet GE's goals for high-quality, cost-effective care," said Helen A. Pulsifer, manager of health care programs for General Electric.
 Under the new plan, GE will be able to offer its employees and eligible retirees under age 65 the option of expanded medical benefits coverage, as well as access to U.S. Healthcare's extensive network of health care providers.
 Coverage under "Health Care Preferred" will begin July 1, 1993. Wellness and preventive programs, long a characteristic of U.S. Healthcare's HMOs, are a key part of the program. "The plan's cost effectiveness, extensive benefits, and reduction in paperwork represent a real value for GE and its employees in the Delaware Valley," said Pulsifer.
 U.S. Healthcare provides managed health care services through its HMOs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maryland. Additional features include workers' compensation and other managed care services to self-insured and other employers and quality assessment and improvement programs, patient surveys and outcome tracking, and data analysis systems for providers and purchasers of health care.
