Philosophy for Behavior Incentives  Individuals are responsible for their own behavior*  Health plans should be free to charge individuals the full cost of their behaviors

 When consumers bear the true cost, they are motivated to change

 The result will be improved health, higher productivity and lower healthcare costs *But not their genetics NBCH_110909_screen
