Perhaps most importantly, Aetna promised that the “[i]nformation from this program will not be used for underwriting, premium or coverage decisions.”

I used to work for them (arranging benefits for Federal Employees). They took all our jobs and shipped them off to Canada.

I expect they'd do nothing less with any information they gain from supplying you with a smart watch. (not that they would give the info to Canada, well okay they might, but what I mean is they will sell that info off to anyone interested in it and will certainly use it to determine coverage)

Hopefully because Medicare For All will put an end to Aetna as a health insurance company.
