A new bill proposed by U.S. House committee would impose hefty penalties on employees who decline to participate in genetic testing as part of a new wellness program. Programs such as these offer discounts on health insurance to employees who complete the health risk assessment. The downside is that companies can charge people for acts that they feel cause health risks. The proposed bill has received strong criticism from many groups citing discrimination. I agree that this bill is discriminatory due to the fact that when your health fails, more than likely your health insurance rates will go up. The people who really need the help will be left behind.
