Everything You Know is Wrong, Wellness Edition
No Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision enjoys more bipartisan support than the provision encouraging employers to pay or fine employees based on their health and health behaviors, a practice known as “workplace wellness.” Both the House and the Senate are likely to pass the Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act and the President is likely to sign it.It appears that neither the President nor Congress seem to have access to the internet, because for all its support and corporate popularity (most large companies now require employees to participate or else forfeit hundreds of dollars), wellness is generally agreed to be the worst idea in the ACA. Wellness damages employee morale and increases the cost of insurance.
