We are now beginning to see the first impacts of privacy of Obama's heath care plan at my company. Last year it began with increased rates and less coverage. This year all our worst fears seem to be coming true. Many companies who still offer health benefits are now requiring employees who are covered to submit a full health profile to the company as well as required to have certain health assesment tests done and the results turned into the company. If we don't then the employee will be penalised by having to pay excess money in health insurance this coming year.
They say it's to promote a healthy lifestyle or promote health awareness. Nothing but lies. Don't get me wrong.....I'm all for promoting healthful living and maintaining my health to the best of my abilities. I already do that. But, this type of stuff should be an individuals choice to do this, not have it forced upon them by the government through their employer. Why does my employer need my full health assesment profile if it's not a requirment to do my job?? For what purpose? So that they can next dictate what I eat for lunch at work or how I live my own life outside of work?? What next? Big daddy government telling me what I can or can't eat for dinner or what choices I should or should not make for myself. This isn't the USA I recall or the country I recognize. Looks like I might have to move to Russia or Europe just to get my freedom back. How much more are we going to take? You can bet for sure I'm writing my representatives in Congress about this.
