Does your company do a health fair?

Hubby's work "offers" this now and since they didn't get enough people there now they claim they discount your insurance rates if you go, but really, you just pay more if you don't. It's a good idea, but I think it's a pretty underhanded way of getting people there.

  • We have one.
    It's really nice, if you have no worries about your information in the hands of a third party,or even a fourth party.
    We get free physicals, free sex related screenings like PSA's and mammograms. Free healthclub memberships and discounts on fitness equipment. Free programs for healthy living. Discounts for journaling improvements with health online, discounts for insurance and paid days off for marathon runs or cancer walks. Also, if something serious does show up on the free employment screenings all of your private healthcare related visits with your private Dr are paid in full.
    It's all in how you look at the reason they do it, and how you hold your private information. We like it.
