The Obesity and Fatness Tax

February 27, 2008

Go to fullsize imageJust came from a convention in Agra India where I read in the papers that UK is starting to charge more in terms of insurance premium depending on the degree of obesity. 

Meaning the higher the BMI ( a measure of fatness) , the higher the premium!  It is the insurance way of probably getting back at the skyrocketing cost of Obesity in terms of medical costs.

Fatness therefore is now becoming a Liability! 

Whether this measure will translate into more people taking care of themeselves remain to be seen!  But it is one way to getting people to exercise and live a healthier lifestyle.  And in the long run benefit both the patient and of course the insurance compnay!

Insure Yourself To Better Health!
