It was no big secret. They passed it with out reading it. Thanks to Pelosi.

“You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking at the 2010 Legislative Conference for National Association of Counties, 3/9/10

Is it ever stated that people in better health are getting a *discount* on their healthcare payments? Saying "unhealthy people are charged extra" kinda sounds like there are penalties and incentives, but no rewards, except in the negative.

The hubby's health insurance charges higher premiums if one's waist circumference is greater than 40 inches. They also charge extra for smokers and collect a blood sample to analyze and verify whether or not you are a smoker.

"It's simple economics"

You haven't been in the Politics fora before just now, have you? Simple economics are not well-received by many.

We need to get beyond who can tell whom to do what.

So long as corporate America is footing the bill for so much of the US health care, it has the right to influence its workers towards healthy behaviors. For clarity, for every dollar that an employee pays, the corporation has to put in about four dollars to cover the cost. The corporation truly does have skin in the game.

It's simple economics. It costs the company less to promote and sustain the health of the workforce than it does to treat the illnesses. It shares some of the savings with its employees. What's not to like?

"Answering CVS (CVS +1.42%) customers' questions about marked-down English muffins, sweeping up collapsed displays of Cadbury Creme Eggs and developing mankind's last known rolls of 35-mm film isn't demeaning, it's just work.

Having to disclose your weight and body fat levels just to get that gig is another story.

The Boston Herald disclosed CVS' new health screening policy Tuesday and revealed that workers who fail to comply would face $50-a-month surcharge. That $600-a-year penalty somewhat undermines CVS' suggestion that the new policy is "voluntary," but it's an increasingly common move by companies looking to save money by avoiding employees with costly health conditions.

Under the new federal health care insurance mandate, companies may also penalize obese workers, smokers and anyone else who doesn't participate in the company wellness plan and meet specific goals.

CVS Caremark, which has 200,000 employees, told all workers using the company insurance plan to have a doctor measure their weight, height, body fat, blood pressure and glucose and fasting lipid levels by May 1. CVS will pay for the screenings, but workers have to sign a form saying the screening is (kind of) voluntary and that they agree to let the company's insurer release results to WebMD Health Services Group. That organization, in turn, helps CVS interpret that data and determine who makes the cut."

Sorry, I posted the wrong story though it's part of it. The right one, was on ABC with Diane Sawyer, about CVS. Part of what's not being covered here is what they covered on the news on television earlier today. CVS is moving forward with this information. They are actually acting, by giving employees above certain BMI numbers, and bad cholesterol numbers 12 months to correct the issue. If after 12 months they have not improved, they will be paying higher health insurance premiums.
