Sorry, Blue Cross is not going to be on my list with my selections of Pandora radio stations and you know what, there’s a ton of folks reading this post that have no clue what Pandora is? You so get only so many free hours a month without a paid subscription too. I like the idea and use it, but even with this I have not found that I need a subscription as there are many source of music on the web and I do have low background music running all during my workday. Gosh forbid the day comes when I can’t tell the difference between what is good workout music or not and need an insurance company to tell me that too. This is no reflection on Pandora, just a commentary on behavioral studies (big right now with insurance companies) where everyone is trying to gain a piece of your brain and be able to modify your behavior in certain directions, even to the point of potential subliminal suggestions.
I turned it on for a few minutes, not for me but it got about 5 minutes of my time and I like to choose my own music. It sure looks like insurers are really looking at any tingle of a consumer interest on the web to draw up some more business, that is if your body fits the algorithmic formulas and they don’t consider you a potential risk and money loser when they score you and your health.
