CVS asks workers to submit to medical screening or face $600 annual fee

BOSTON (WHDH) -- CVS Pharmacy is reportedly asking workers to submit to a medical screening, or pay more for their health insurance. CVS is giving its 200,000 employees an ultimatum: submit your Body Mass Index, your weight and other important health statistics to the company that provides their health insurance. "I mean, understand how corporations feel like it’s important to encourage wellness of their employees, but that seems a little intrusive," said Brian Doyle, who is against the policy. And although the CVS says it is completely voluntary, anyone who chooses not to weigh in will end up paying an extra $50 per month, or $600 a year more for benefits.
