CVS Is Pushing Obamacare. Will it Backfire?
« on: September 27, 2013, 06:53:01 PM »
My insurance plan requires me to use CVS Pharmacy.

Today I went in to get my Flu shot. The Pharmacist apologized for taking so long because of recent cutbacks in staff.

Hmmm....

 CVS Caremark (CVS) recently announced that it would use its retail stores to promote the new health law to uninsured Americans who will be eligible to buy coverage through new online insurance marketplaces, starting on Oct. 1.

It seems that they (CVS) thought there would be all these new customers for their Pharmacy from the new law. Are they now thinking differently ???

Hmmm.....

Meanwhile in Michigan.....

Opponents of the health care law are also shifting into gear. Last week they called for a boycott of CVS Caremark in response to the company’s July 25 announcement that it is rolling out a company-wide information and outreach program “to help customers gain access to critical health insurance marketplace information.”

ObamaCare weighs in: CVS tells employees to reveal personal health info -- or pay up
 CVS is telling its employees they need to reveal their height, weight, body fat percent and other personal information for health insurance purposes.

In CVS's case, workers not comfortable getting the review done will have to pay a $600 annual penalty.

Actually, my daughter's health care plan is doing the same.

Unfortunately, I have to go through CVS Caremark.

I've been going though Walgreen's. It's the closest to my house and never got into the habit of going to CVS. Now I'm glad that I don't go there.

Am I odd that I don't have a regular pharmacy?  We only have gotten prescriptions a few times over the course of being together for 27 years, and just go to KMART.

I was at the CVS pharmacy yesterday and didn't see anything about Obamacare.  The only thing they were pushing was flu shots.

Sounds like you are Blessed with good health!

Luckily my Rx needs have dropped about 50 percent this year. There are still some issues post surgery(s).

The past five years I have had to purchase more medication then I have needed in my lifetime.

As far as the ACA all of the major chains are putting out educational materials on Obamacare. In fact I think some of it is required by law.
