CVS threatens to fine employees who refuse to take health assessment
Silicon Valley Business Journal

CVS employees with company health plans will have to take a free health exam – measuring such metrics like weight, blood pressure, and body fat – or watch their monthly premiums increase $50, according to a report in Bloomberg Businessweek. CVS Caremark said they hope to provide an incentive for employees to become aware of their numbers, which could lead to healthier lifestyle choices.
