CVS Caremark wants employees to give them personal health information, like their weight, or pay a $600 a year fine.

CVS Caremark is the largest drugstore chain the country.  They say this move is done to reduce the costs of insuring employees.  The Boston Herald reports that increasing healthcare costs are making this move more common for employers across the country, in an attempt to weed out costly people to insure, like those with obesity and diabetes.

The company’s 200,000 employees will have to be screened by doctors to determine their weight, height, body fat, blood pressure, glucose levels and many other diagnostics.

What would you do if your employer told you this?
