Live And Local With Kevin Wall 03/21/13: CVS Pharmacy, Obamacare, And The Gripe Line

CBS LAS VEGAS-CVS plans to adopt a new policy that will affect employees who participate in the company’s health insurance plan. All 200,000 CVS employees can “voluntarily” undergo a WebMD Wellness Review that will determine their blood sugar levels, blood pressure, cholesterol, and body mass/weight. For those employees who choose not to participate, or employees who fail to disclose their health information, their health insurance rate will increase by $50 per month — a $600 annual increase. Additionally, CVS employees who choose to submit to a Wellness Review, are also required to take strides to improve their over-all health — if deemed necessary during the review. Steve Kane,Human Resources Expert, talks about how companies like CVS Pharmacy can implement policies like this. Callers tell us if they think CVS has the right to do this.
