YOUR DATA IS WORTHWHILE; YOUR LABOR? NOT SO MUCH:

Survey: Americans Would Share Medical Information for a Price (ALLIE BIDWELL, November 13, 2013, US News)

Many Americans would be willing to share private health information, such as blood tests, height and weight measurements and even genetic testing, with their insurance providers if they received a financial incentive to do so, according to a poll released Wednesday by HealthDay and Harris Interactive.

Of the more than 2,000 U.S. adults surveyed Oct. 21-23, 76 percent said they would share the results of blood pressure tests, 68 percent said they would reveal whether they have diabetes or high cholesterol, and 49 percent said they would undergo invasive genetic testing to determine their risk of cancer or inherited medical conditions.
