Great TCS piece by John Tammy on building financial incentives into health insurance policies. It makes sense that insurance better reward healthy lifestyles with lower premiums. (Not really something you can do with Hilarycare.) Here’s a snip:
"Specifically, UHC will offer high deductible insurance of $2,500 per year for individuals, alongside $5,000 per family. The innovation within is that the plan offers its enrollees an opportunity to lower their annual deductibles by submitting to blood tests and other evaluations to see if they smoke, and generally measure up to other targets set in terms of blood pressure, cholesterol, and height/weight ratio."
Next thing you know the left will be howling that this discriminates against fat people.
