Yes, and those who are needy are not the individuals who can frequent restaurants on a regular basis.
Perhaps they will simply select a healthier population, where everyone is above average. Can they redline the community based on BMI, blood pressure, or pre-existing conditions?
Perhaps taking their cue from the Cleveland Clinic, where smokers are banned from hiring, employees are forced to wear step trackers, and your healthcare coverage depends on how HEALTHY you are! Let’s say you have diabetes, unless you participate in strict control program supervised by your employer, you are penalized with higher premiums and less coverage. They’ve been doing this for years.
