Sounds a bit ridiculous, well completely actually. BMI doesn't take into account muscle at all, that is one of the major problems with it. Also things such as BP can be caused by a number of issues...... It's just stupid.

Haha, I just hate insurance companies, so I'm being pessimistic. Hahaha
Welcome to socialism. Government tells you how to live your life and penalizes you if you don't comply.
I don't think it's unreasonable to penalize someone if they are not actively engaging in their employer's wellness programs. However I do think it's unreasonable to penalize them for their body not responding to such programs. For example, I am obese by my BMI. I run regularly, eat healthy, and participate in various fitness events. I'm doing everything I can to be fit. I shouldn't be penalized because my body is stubborn.
