Off your meds…

That offensive little phrase is now going to have consequences attached to it that could rival the bad credit score…since FICO is the one that’s doing it…

Medication adherence.
Non-compliant. These are some new health insurance/pharma buzzwords…

Via my friend in the health insurance fight nyceve.
Fico is the thing that presently calculates your financial score….and now it will get your prescription information and rate you.

Because if you don’t take your medications…you’ll have a ‘non-compliant’ label attached to you.

Will employers be able to see this stuff when they run a standard credit check (almost universal for full time job applicants now. )

Know what meds you are on and guess what you’ve got?

Non compliance? Someone not having enough *money* to pay for their meds? Doesn’t matter. Still non compliant….

OK. looks like HIPPA just got a piece chipped out of it….

One more way to screw people.

This disgusts me.
