Employees at one of the nation's largest drugstore chains must disclose personal health information -- including their weight -- or pay a $600-a-year fine, according to a published report. CVS Caremark Corp. is requiring workers to reveal the information to their company's insurance carrier or pay an extra $50 a month for health coverage, according to the Boston Herald. CVS could not immediately be reached for comment. But a spokesman told the newspaper that "our benefits program is evolving to help our colleagues take more responsibility for improving their health and managing health-associated costs."
