In my opinion, the state Public Employees’ Benefits Board is shortsighted and discriminatory in its punishment of employees who choose to forgo the COVID-19 vaccinations dictated by Gov. Steve Sisolak (Friday Review-Journal). Nothing screams “political pressure” like adding a surcharge to the insurance of a group of patients who deny an experimental vaccine while the insurance company neglects to add a premium penalty to patients with preventable comorbidities, e.g. obesity, high cholesterol, liver disease, lung disease, heart disease and type 2 diabetes that ultimately require the insurance companies to subsidize lifetime treatment.
