CVS does NOT do a health screening for prospective employees. They do NOT know what the numbers are for an emplyee that does a health screening. The screening is voluntary and you get a DISCOUNT on insurance for doing it.
The crap I have been reading couldn't have been written any better by Walgreen's themselves.
We have been doing health screenings as a benefit for years. Starting last year, you got a premium discount if you participted. No one was charged more for bad numbers. I know this because my BMI was still to high, my good choleserol was non-existant and my sugar and Bp were too low. I still got that discount.
Anyway, Thanks for reading. I was getting angrier and angrier at the bs that is being thrown out there and decided to share what I know about it.
I wonder if it has to do with our stock jumping $4.50 a share last week????

I am just glad they are still offering insurance. The fine per employee to drop us is 2K. They pay 6K per year per employee that is covered. They could have taken the cheap way out.
So far, the info is confidential but next year the gov't will most likely want the data. That's when my participation stops.

We have that as well, a 'wellness' program that leads to a company discount on the front side from the ins co. not sure if it's passed back to us or not \:\/

CVS pays all claims but uses an ins. company to administer the policy. I like getting a discount. I also like getting a free screening. My last one was the best I had ever had. \:\)
It makes sense for a healthcare company to promote good health in the employees. I hate the smoking ban but I understand it. Our liabilty insurance dropped when they put that in.
