Wellness vs Privacy

Are you kidding me?

"Houston required employees to tell an online wellness company about their disease history, drug and seat belt use, blood pressure and other delicate information."

And the best part (for certain values of "best")?

"The company ... could pass the data to "third party vendors"

Oh goody!

Of course, employees could opt out, no problem.

Wait, what?

"[B]ut only if they paid an extra $300 a year for medical coverage."

So the vendor sells employee info, and employees that take a pass get dinged for $300?

Exit question: how much cash does each employee get for the re-selling of their private health info? Oh, they "save" $300 on insurance?

Seems legit.
