My company has similar policy - $500 per year penalty if you don't do their 'screening' which tracks weight, body fat, some finger prick blood test can't remember why - PLUS you get to pay $500 penalty if you don't fill out their health questionnaire PLUS an additional $500 penalty if your spouse doesn't fill out the health questionnaire - for a grand total of $1500 penalty if you voluntarily forego the above. PLUS company paid healthcare is gone - my healthcare monthly premium went up $150 per month.

Yep this Obamacare is really beyond unbelievable.

I don't know what company you work for but I know most companies are charging you a pre-medical tax early to make money off this. That's right, they are charging you a year early for something they don't have to pay for right now.

Simple solution.

Don't work at CVS.

It's not like they pay very well anyway. Plenty of jobs around any CVS looking to pay you low wages.

The point is after Obama care is in full effect; this is an exact example of one of MANY situations that will occur.

AKA it will become the norm for most employers...

Where have you been?

They have been doing this shit to the working class for years now.

They were doing this to get people out before retirement or so they didn't have to pay some worker's comp issue.

Why...because the employees are required to pay and extra $600 out of their paychecks due to Obamacare?


CRACK.

You are on it.

Why should employers provide health insurance at all besides coverage for injuries that occure at work?

Employees should be paid THEIR wage ... and that is it. From that wage they should pay for ALL of their personal expenses including health care and retirement.


People CRAVE the socialistic benefits provided by their employers ... while claiming that they believe in the freedom and free choice.

GIVE ME A BREAK!

If you REALLY believe in Freedom and Free Choice then you shouldn't be expect to be coddled by your employer like you were working on a Plantation "for Da Man" (who provided food, clothing, housing, etc.)

Sarah Palin called it with DEATH PANELS.....but all the lemmings followed the hater propaganda from the LEFTY MSM.

This is just the beginning of government control of you.

Hope you like what you created....you own it now.

You think Palin thought up her own talking points?

She is a sassy beauty queen. I'll give her the point that she is a verbal fighter, but she's not the brains.

Death Panels was fed to her, not that it's wrong, the info, but spare us the brilliance of Palin.

Two-thirds of Americans are obese or overweight.

That costs money. A lot of money in related illnesses. If more companies had that sort of policy - health costs would come down.

I don't have a problem with a company trying to curb their costs. I do, however, see the irony in a pill-pushing company, such as CVS, setting the trend.

Re: CVS to penalize employees $600 a year for its 'voluntary' wellness program.
This is not a new concept and has nothing to do with Obamacare. I used to work for a large company that did this. You get a $600/yr credit for doing the health screening. It included going to a nurse at a clinic they set up in the building, letting them weigh you, measure body fat, etc. Then do a risk assessment "do you smoke?", etc., then send you into various programs to "help" you with your bad habits. I opted NOT to get the credit and keep them the fuck out of my personal business.

I also paid an additional $50/mo for smoking, while I watched 400 pound whales shove food down their throats and consume thousands per year in prescriptions and doctor care. They were not fined for their bad habits that harmed their health. My entire family of 5 kids and I cost them ZERO in the same year. No prescriptions, no health issues, no doctor visits.

It's not fair. What can you do? Opt out of nanny state whenever possible.

The working provide that for you though.

Without those working for you - you couldn't run your business.

You hire people because you need help, you need partners because the work is too much.

Yet, you decide that you create that business and those people deserve nothing. You care little about them. Even though they stock your shelves, run your registers, keep your business going while you vacation somewhere.

But, that's fair, is it? They run your business living in poverty while you reap all the rewards?

Fucking people have no idea what the working class does for them.

Who's going to take your trash to the dump twice a week?

Not liking those guys, are you? I bet if those guys stopped taking your trash - you'd beg and vote and scream to whatever politician you could to get those guys back on the job. I'd bet you even give a percent of your check if you had too.

Without the working class - you people are limp dicks. Yet, you people don't want to pay anything to make their lives better because it might infringe on your fucking vacation money.

They don't deserve health insurance - only you do - because you are so special and you have a bank account and goddammit people should listen to you!

"Because of Obama" my ass!

# 1. People should be taking care of their own health, and researching new ways to do that so they don't have to depend so much on doctors, and/or Obamacare.

# 2. Corporations are out of control, there are no regulations in place preventing them from doing anything they want, specifically something so unethical as demanding this. Let's face it, this CVS idea sucks.

More blame should go to the corporations/employers at this point.

Total New World Order agenda. If you think CVS will be the only ones doing this, you are a fucking retard. The globalist fascist shitbag elite will force every company in America and all other Western nations to adopt these illegal as fuck mandates.

This ties right into the eugenics, extermination agenda of "unfit" humans, but before that it is yet another austerity enforcing measure, besides insane control over your life.

Let's not forget about the fact that ALL your health information is permanently in databases by the govt. and fascist corporations.

If they can get away with forcing Americans to abide by this insanity, then all of us are finished.

If you live in a right to work state, then you have no rights in the work place. They can easily get rid of you for any reason. They should call it right to fire.

Yes idiot.... it IS because of Obamacare. It's written in the law.

This IS NOT CVS's doing... they are merely complying with what everyone will have to comply with. Some companies are just getting the ball rolling a little faster than others.

Welcome to Obamacare... there will be much more that you won't like in the near future.

Excise taxes to come and that doctor you love...forget about keeping your doctor of choice.
