CVS Wellness Program a Prescription for Discrimination!!!
- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 27, 2013
Foster City, CA - NAAFA calls on the leadership of CVS Caremark to re-evaluate their new so-called "voluntary" wellness policy. This program requires employees to release private medical information to their employer's wellness program or pay an additional $50 per month for healthcare coverage. How can a program be called voluntary when non-compliance results in a penalty?
CVS joins the ranks of cost cutting corporations such as Whole Foods and Safeway disguising an attempt to squeeze more out of employees as benefits packages and wellness programs.
NAAFA members and the NAAFA Board of Directors request the re-evaluation of the intent and execution of CVS Caremark's Wellness Program. NAAFA offers its assistance in referring experts who may be of service to you in finding health-based wellness programs.
Founded in 1969, NAAFA is a non-profit human rights organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for fat people. NAAFA works to eliminate discrimination based on body size and provide fat people with the tools for self-empowerment through public education, advocacy, and member support.
