My employer is trying to conduct mandatory health evaluations, which include blood pressure, LDL cholestorol, BMI (body mass index), and blood glucose tests.. really??? for what???..

1st if i fail 2 outta these 4 tests i'll be mandatorial placed in a package that raise my premium and deductable..
isnt this " considered a pre-existing medical condition?

2nd.. they are telling me i "have to see a RX tech,or a DR of our choice, for it to be at no charge".. if you see your own DR. then you have to pay your co-pay, plus any additional charges..?

isnt this a violation of privacy?

3rd "if I do not take their tests, im mandatory placed in their most expensive and highest deductable "package"

i thought as long as your employer provided any packages , anyone could purchase any package..

i'm doing research now...., but id thought id ask ATS.. ?

please help...

I've never seen James Bond having those mandatory.

All in the name of Job Security, taking care of the slaves is such a noble thing to do.

Thanks GM..

Although i'm well and healthy.. and will pass their ludicris tests.. and REFUSE to take them.. just think its wrong to force these "tests" upon people..., and by my refusing.... i will be "forced to pay more along with a higher deductable... somehow... this isnt right!!!

Ah don't we wish a public option had been passed, instead of... well whatever they did pass.

Insurance companies have had us by the jewels for a long time but from what I gather many Americans enjoy this.
The insurance companies make the no I doubt that it is illegal. Although, I haven't had the stomach to read the watered down toothless version of the healthcare bill that did pass.

Expect at least another 50 years of premiums rising and coverage plummeting.

I would say this is very wrong.

If I were you I would refuse to get examined, refuse to pay the higher price. Of course they'll make a stink about it. But if it's really as big of a deal to them as they seem to make it out to be then certainly they won't mind settling this matter in court over violation of our civil rights eh?

If I were in your shoes I would go about my business till they pull me aside asking about my lack of consent and whatnot and talk about it. If they still refuse to let you opt out of the testing and the expensive premium THEN I would tell them that they'd be hearing from my lawyer. If they still didn't budge then I would go through with it.

But it's really up to you.
