Obamacare rears its ugly head, again!

I guess we can stop buying at CVS, but unfortunately this is probably only the start of what's to come under commie care.

ObamaCare weighs in: CVS tells employees to reveal personal health info -- or pay up

quote:

Looks like ObamaCare may be rearing its head. In the wake of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, CVS is telling its employees they need to reveal their height, weight, body fat percent and other personal information for health insurance purposes.

The Rhode Island-based company, which employs around 200,000 individuals, is telling workers who use its health insurance they need to have a wellness review done -- or pay up.

CVS says it will pay for the health reviews and the information will go to a third party administrator of CVS's benefits, not CVS itself. According to the company, CVS bosses will not be able to access their employees' health records.

The idea is to incentivize healthy living. CVS says the idea is nothing new.


Hmmm. I don't like this.

frick Obamacare.

What does Obamacare have to do with this? It's a cost-control measure negotiated by CVS with its insurance carrier. They get a break on the premium for having their employees participate.

I don't see a problem with it. If CVS is paying for their healthcare, they are allowed to take steps to reduce it's cost. If an employee doesn't like it, he/she can go pay their own.

Now if only we could apply that logic to oh I don't know welfare money?

I dont' either. If they are being forced to pay for care, the Golden Rule applies. He who has the Gold, makes the Rules.

This is the problem with dependency. You're always someone's bitch.

The whole slant on this from Faux News that there's something sinister going on is really pathetic.

It has to do with ObamaCare because all those who are not insured by employers will be able to buy insurance from the lovely 'exchanges' set up by states and funded by taxpayers. That is exactly why companies like CVS are becoming more aggressive about these so-called 'wellness checks.' How many times did you hear about something like this PRIOR to ObamaCare?!?! And if you think this is something just reported or insinuated by Fox News, wait until it happens to you. You'll then become a believer! :-(
