Separate programs. My company pays for your health benefits. You're on your on for SS.
Let me tell you a story.
We had a really fat guy in CA. CA basically rubber stamps on worker issue. It's part of why they are bankrupt. So I have a little LOL at them for bad karme. Anyway, our fat guy worked on a factory floor in a walking around position. But factory floors are really hard, and this guys knees give out. Cost us $300k+. CA couldn't care less that most of this was his fault.
Had two IT people that had lapband surgery.
We had a guy in CT that I knew that smoked and spent a fair amount of his time at the casino. Guess who had a heart attack?
There is a reason why most of the country is unhealthy. It's because, like I said earlier, there is no penalty for unhealthiness.
I understand both sides of the discussion, but once upon a time, societal pressures kept people in line. You studied because you didn't want to be called stupid. You made some sort of effort to stay in shape because you didn't want the other kids to call you fat.
It's like we're all supposed to hold hands, sing kumbayah, and pretend we're all perfect.
