"Wellness" programs are all well and good—just don't punish people for not participating in them.
The American public overwhelmingly says it's a good idea for employers to offer workers programs that promote healthy behavior, but a solid majority also firmly oppose financial penalties linked to those programs, a new poll finds.
The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll released Tuesday also found increases in the number of people whose families have been directly affected by Obamacare, although most still said they hadn't been affected one way or the other as of yet.
The poll further found that stories about long waiting lists at Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals were more closely followed than stories about Obamacare in recent months, and that a majority of people who have either served in the military or had family members who did said that care from the VA was worse than the care that most Americans receive.
Overall opinion on Obamacare remained unchanged in recent months, with 45 percent of people having an unfavorable view, compared to 39 percent with a favorable stance.
